Orlando Ballet School does not have dormitories, and housing is at the responsibility of the student and their family. The Head of Student Services will be able to assist families with additional resources for both nearby housing options and roommate forums.


Student Housing Options

Please note that there are some restrictions and specific application requirements for international students that can cause difficulty in approval of a lease. Orlando Ballet, Orlando Ballet School and any staff member is not able to sign leases as a guarantor for international or any students.

Roommate and Housing Forum

Registered students can be added to our housing forum where they can meet and discuss with other incoming students’ opportunities for roommates or living situations. To avoid complications, only enrolled and committed students are added to the forum.



The full day Academy, Trainee and OBII programming will likely require highschool students to enroll in virtual or homeschooling options. Many students remain enrolled in their home state or country’s virtual school programming or enroll in Florida virtual school to complete their academic obligations. The decision on the academic programming is up to the attending student and their family. OBS houses an on site study hall for students who need to complete their academic work between classes. There is not an academic advisor on site to manage or oversee a student’s school work.


For families transitioning to virtual or homeschooling, we have the following recommended resources from fellow students and their families regarding managing both their academics and academy dance training:




The health and wellness of all Orlando Ballet School students is of utmost importance to us. The Head of Student Services can provide a variety or resources to students who are experiencing any challenges to their physical or mental wellbeing are welcome to reach out to the Head of Student Services staff member to be directed to available resources.
