This year-round, full-day training program is designed to meet the needs of those dedicated students 12-19 years of age, from across the U.S. and abroad, who seek the highest standard of classical ballet education to prepare for a professional career.
Working daily under Arsen Serobian’s artistic direction, students develop the essential skills to fully explore and realize their greatest individual potential. This program is based on the Vaganova method, a system of training that is logical, thought-provoking, inspiring and highly effective.
Along with daily lessons in classical technique, students are immersed in learning the classical repertoire and are exposed to a variety of workshops to develop fluency in various styles of dance.
We charge tuition per semester only. Tuition varies depending on the length of each semester and how many classes a student registers for in that semester. As a general guideline, 1.5-hour classes are $30 and 3-hour classes are $60. For more information, please visit our Admissions page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

A black leotard and black skirt must be worn for every class. We prefer tasteful, classic-style leotards, such as a camisole, short sleeve, or long sleeve. Lace, halter-tops, rhinestones, or see-through items are discouraged. Pink tights and pink shoes (with elastics sewn in) are required. Hair must always be worn up in a bun and securely fastened. Rings, bracelets, watches, necklaces, or hoop earrings may not be worn in class. Small stud earrings are acceptable.
Students must be punctual and ready to start class at the designated time. If tardy, you may quietly stand in the doorway until the teacher invites you to join class. We ask students to behave in class as they would in an academic school room: listening to and showing respect toward teachers, being kind and respectful to fellow students, and keeping a positive attitude. Students are not allowed to bring food or beverages (besides water) into the classroom. Gum is also prohibited. If a student is coughing, feverish, or possibly contagious with any sort of ailment, we ask they are kept home. Students may make-up their missed class on another day.
