Ballet Mississippi’s classes are open to all student applicants who desire to train in classical ballet and other dance forms. Ballet Mississippi is an equal opportunity school and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, age, color, national origin or sexual orientation. Students are accepted with or without previous training.
Ballet Mississippi practices an open enrollment policy. Through a process of audition, acceptance and placement, we accept new students at the beginning of a new school year, when classes resume in January, and during the summer workshops. We do not require previous dance training or experience to enroll. Students are placed according to ability and the appropriate class.
New students age 3-6 are places in the Lower School classes based upon the age requirements for those classes (see Curriculum tab). Students ages 7 and older should contact Ballet Mississippi to arrange an evaluation and the appropriate class level. Consideration is given to the age and previous training of all new students.
