Every student in the School and Pre-Professional Divisions will receive one written evaluation at the end of the calendar year. The evaluation will include information on the student’s technical development, attendance and overall demeanor. The student’s status for the next school year will also be indicated on the evaluation.
Enrollment is not guaranteed from year to year. If a student is promoted to the next level, the promotion takes place in September, so those students attending the Summer Program will remain in their current level. Occasionally, students may be promoted mid-year at the discretion of the Artistic Director. Student evaluations are completed after great deliberation by the teachers involved in the student’s training. Meetings to discuss evaluations may be scheduled by the Artistic Director throughout the year if needed. Evaluations are conducted by request in the Open Division.
