QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Do I have to audition to participate in the Summer Intensive?
No, auditions are not required in order to enroll in Summer Intensive; however, it is recommended that dancers have at least 3 years of experience in formal dance training and currently take 3 ballet classes per week.

[hidden-text]What are the Audition Master Classes for in other cities?
AMB holds Audition Master Classes at locations around the country so that students have an opportunity to take class with AMB staff, learn more about the Summer Intensive, and ask questions.  Merit scholarships are available on a limited basis for students attending from out of town, so Audition Master Classes are also an opportunity for us to see if and how much scholarship money might be available to you.

There are two groups in the Summer Intensive.  Which group will I be in?
A separate panel of ballet teachers/professionals (who are not on summer staff) are employed to adjudicate placement classes that will take place on the first day of the program.  Student groups will be posted by the end of the day on the first day of classes.  Some younger/less experienced dancers may be asked to attend Junior Intensive classes in the morning and Summer Intensive classes (Group 2) in the afternoon.  Younger boarding students who take Junior Intensive classes in the morning will automatically be enrolled in afternoon classes (Group 2) with the Summer Intensive.  Students who join the Intensive after the first day of placement classes will be put in contact with the Director of Summer Intensives, who will place the dancer in the appropriate program.
