Student Division

September 9 - December 18, 2021

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 assessed 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.

 

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 that are the keystones of all successful careers.

There is a required uniform for Student Division classes. The dress code can be found HERE.
