PLACEMENTS & AUDITIONS

SCHOOL YEAR PLACEMENTS + AUDITIONS

Orlando Ballet School is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 8 level program that combines high-quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development.

Orlando Ballet School places students aged three to six by age while students aged seven and up are auditioned and placed by knowledge, ability, and potential. All students receive bi-annual progress reports and are advanced only when the teaching team believes more advanced work will be beneficial to the student. Any student new to Orlando Ballet School age 7 or older is required to take a placement class to receive their level recommendation for registration.
