about The Washington School of Ballet:
Pre-Ballet, for students ages five and six, offers an introduction to ballet. After a year of Pre-Ballet, students progress into Pre-Elementary to begin learning the fundamentals of movements in ballet classes.
Graded classes are for seven to 16 year-olds interested in learning the fundamentals of dance. An interview and/or auditions are required for admission.
The Release-Time Program, for gifted students ages 13 to 18, pursues special arrangements with students' academic schools, enabling them to attend dance classes Monday through Friday to study classical technique, pointe, modern, pas de deux, and men's class. Placement is by audition.
The school also offers an intensive Summer Program, by audition, which runs for four or five weeks.
