Admission and placement in the Greenwich Ballet Academy is by audition only. Auditions are by appointment.  To schedule your appointment, contact us here.

After submitting the student registration form and being accepted to the program, new students must complete the enrollment process by submitting a medical waiver and payment of tuition and all fees prior to the start of class in order to hold their place.

If all class assignments are filled, students will be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted when a place becomes available.

Applications

  • Registration Application
  • Registration fee – $50.00 (non-refundable)
  • Performance fee (check tuition schedule)
  • Parent authorization; photo/media release
  • Medical waiver for class participation
  • Tuition (non-refundable after start of classes)

Auditions

Auditions are conducted by master teachers, school directors or choreographers to assess the dancer’s placement, technique, flexibility, balance and coordination, physical attributes, musicality, stage presence, and motivation.  These talents and attributes are the foundation upon which the ballet education process rests and from which perfroming excellence is achieved.

Placement

After an audition or placement class, GBA faculty determine the appropriate level for a new student. Families are generally notified within 24 hours.

The Artistic Director and faculty reserve the right to adjust the placement level of any student at any time, according to the student’s individual needs, for example, after illness or injury, or an extended absence.

Performance

Students are trained during class for two or more productions a year. Roles are cast based on merit, technique, acting ability (when required), stage presence, demonstrated discipline, work ethic, maturity and attendance at rehearsals and scheduled performances.
