all parents should arrive prepared to register their child should they

children auditioning will be assessed for suitability for classical
ballet training; however, previous dance training is not required or
expected. Students are assessed for physical attributes beneficial
to the study of classical ballet such as the musculature of the foot,
and flexibility of the ankle and hip sockets. The purpose of the audition
is to determine if the child has the physical capacity and attitude to
study ballet happily and safely. If the child possesses good
physical characteristics and has a desire to dance and willingness to
learn, they most likely will be accepted. However, a child with
exceptional physical characteristics and a poor attitude may not be
accepted. Parents should be prepared to wait, and as space will be limited,
we ask that only one parent accompany the auditioning child, and no
other family members.
Attire: Students are
expected to arrive dressed for their audition, as changing rooms may not
be available. Students are to wear a plain leotard (no
skirt) or swim-suit. No tights, no socks or other foot coverings
for the audition.
