Enrollment in the Children’s Division is based on a child’s age on or before September 1st. Children under the age of nine are generally placed in the Children’s Division without further evaluation.

New students with extensive ballet training are invited to take a placement class to determine the most appropriate level; placement is based on ability and not age. Please contact the school office at 512-894-2147 or email if you have any questions or to schedule a placement class for our Academy Division.

Students in the Community Division are placed by age.

A minimum of 4 students must be enrolled in order to keep a class on the schedule. If a class is canceled, we will attempt to place students in another class/time at their level.
