The Ballet Clinic only selects 36 students, ages 8-16 across 3 groupings each season. The groups are based on a student's ability, skill, and potential. Each group consists of 12 hand selected dancers that are pursuing a career or collegiate path in dance. Because the selective nature of our school, auditions are required. We are not looking for finished, or polished dancers. We are looking for dancers who really do need the help to excel or launch a career in ballet who are fundamentally interesting. We are now accepting students for Season 3 (2021-2022 Season). If you are interested in applying please email us at email@example.com.
SEASON 3 AUDITIONS
We are so grateful to YAGP for the opportunity of competing at finals, and so grateful that so many opportunities came from YAGP Finals. Because so many kids have done so well this season, they will not be returning for Season 3, which means, we now have space for next season if you are interested in joining.
We currently have spaces for both male and female dancers ages 8-15 who are interested in pursuing a career in classical ballet at any level. We are currently accepting video auditions until June 30, 2021. We will have one in person audition, Sunday, July 11, 2021 at 3:00-4:30 PM. We will also be happy to answer any questions regarding our program after the audition.

HOW IT WORKS
The first step is TRIAGE. Diagnosing issues with your technique or body that are hindering your progress in ballet. This could range from turnout, feet, knees, flexibility, strength, alignment issues, or just that a student is behind in technique.
The second step is TREATMENT. Creating a plan that focuses on the individual needs of the dancer. This could include everything from cross-training in yoga or pilates, seeing a nutritionist, supplemental private training to clean up technique, and more. The most important thing is setting up a goal, and having an "end game" plan.
The third step is MAINTENANCE. Maintain the progress you have made by setting up quarterly check ups to monitor your growth in ballet.
*THIS IS NOT A BALLET SCHOOL, NOR DOES IT TAKE THE PLACE OF FULL TIME TRAINING.
The studio is equipped with state of the art Harlequin sprung floors and marly to guarantee the safety of the dancer's body.
One of the most critical things in the development of a dancer is finding the right coach for you.
The career process at the ballet clinic is to help dancers find the right path for them. This may be college, moving on to a professional school, summer intensive, or the ultimate goal of joining a ballet company.
