ABT Placement Class Information:
All Ballet classes at Sole City Dance follow the ABT National Training Curriculum. Students must take a placement class prior to enrolling in Ballet. This allows the faculty to group students cohesively in order to best reach the goals set forth in the curriculum. A placement class will be held both before and near the end of summer 2018 classes: Sunday, July 8th in the afternoon and Saturday, August 11th in the morning.
Dancers ages 7 and up are invited and will receive a free T-shirt featuring the ABT logo! The cost to audition is $20 per dancer.
The placement class will be structured like a normal ballet class, starting at the barre and then moving into center and across the floor exercises. Classes will be broken down by age ranges (see below). Dancers will check-in prior to their scheduled time where they will receive a number. Ballet faculty will observe each placement class. Students can expect to receive their level placement within three days of the class. Students are welcome to attend both sessions. If a student attends a second audition, the cost reduces to $15.
