Student Division

Commitment 

(ages 8-16)

All Student Division classes are taught with recognized methods designed to prepare our students for success in the performing arts. Placement in all Student Division classes is by assessment by DSBPA faculty either during a class (for current students) or by private class assessment for new students that enroll after the first week of the academic year has passed. All Student Division classes are taught with recognized methods designed to prepare our students for success in the performing arts. We have many students who desire careers in other areas, and we believe that whatever field or endeavor students seek, it’s the preparedness, self-respect, respect for others, focus, open-mindedness, perseverance and sense of humor that come from successful training are they keystones of all successful careers.

 

Enrollment for our Spring 2020 term is now closed. Please check back in the coming weeks for our Summer 2020 class listing, as we're looking at all options to keep families safe during the outbreak. Thanks for your patience! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime at info@durhamschoolforballet.com.
