SCHOOL YEAR PLACEMENTS AND 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.

About Jorden Morris:

Jorden Morris is an Alberta-born, internationally renowned ballet choreographer and director. He trained at the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts and Royal Winnipeg Ballet School. Morris began his career with the RWB after graduating and quickly rose to the rank of principal dancer, performing lead roles in both classical and contemporary works. After retiring from his career on stage, Morris studied choreography and theater arts at New York University, as well as early French choreography from Claude Bessy and Serge Golovine of the Paris Opera.

Morris then expanded his career by taking the position of Ballet Master and assistant to the Director at Boston Ballet. He rose to the rank of Chief Ballet Master and was the interim Director for the 2001 season. After returning to Canada as Associate School Director for the RWB, Jorden was commissioned to create his first full-length work, Peter Pan. This production became the biggest box office in the RWB’s history until it was surpassed three years later by his next full-length ballet, Moulin Rouge® – The Ballet. Jorden has also choreographed for the Genie and Gemini awards which were broadcast nationally and featured dancers from The National Ballet of Canada and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
