ABT Evaluations

Virtuosity Performing Arts Studio

Before entering the American Ballet Theatre® National Training Curriculum, each student must be evaluated for proper placement. This is not an audition, but merely ensures each student is placed in the class that will most properly ensure that student’s success. Initial evaluations are $20 per student, and are held in August/September, February and June of each year. Dancers interested in joining the ABT® program at other times throughout the year may be able to arrange a class evaluation.

After evaluations, dancers will be emailed their placement, & what their uniform requirements are. At the discretion of our ABT® certified instructors, students may be moved to another class at any time throughout the dance year, depending on student ability and age.

Students currently enrolled in the ABT National Training Curriculum will be evaluated during their regularly scheduled classes, and do not need to attend Fall evaluations. If, for any reason, a student steps out of the ABT® curriculum, he/she must participate in another Evaluation to re-enter the program.

After your child has been evaluated, they will be automatically enrolled the appropriate class. If for any reason you choose to not continue classes, you must let the office know via email. ABT is an ongoing program. Students remain enrolled unless cancelled by their parent in writing. Any cancellations must be in writing (email is fine) by the 25th of the month, as billing runs on the 1st of each month.
