the audition process

New ballet students ages 8+ must audition with The Rock School and be placed in an appropriate level by Rock School Directors prior to enrollment.  Students can either choose to schedule an in class audition, audition with us through our audition tour or if neither of the former options are possible submit a video audition.  Please click on one of the buttons to choose one of the audition options. Please email for additional questions or concerns. 



All students are required to first submit a Video Audition. Video Auditions are accepted on an ongoing basis, as space permits. Notification in regards to acceptance is provided by email within 7-14 business days once video is received. Please fill out the form below to find out more information regarding the Video Audition. 



If you would like to have an In-Class Audition you must still submit a Video Audition first. Click on the button below to request an in-class audition request for either The Rock School's 2018 - 19 School Year program and/or the 2018 Summer Ballet Intensive.

All scholarships are given at the discretion and direction of The School Directors. The Rock School awards three types of scholarships:

Merit - The Rock School offers a limited number of full and partial tuition scholarships, primarily to students in the upper levels. These scholarships are based on talent and ability and are awarded only by The School Directors.

Young Boys- The Rock School is proud to support the training of young male dancers. Scholarships are available to male students, ages 3-11 in Creative Movement and ballet classes. The scholarship covers 100% of the tuition for Creative Movement and ballet classes. Other classes (ie. Hip Hop or gymnastics) are not covered by the Young Boys’ Scholarship.

City Dance - The Rock School’s City Dance program enables The Rock School to identify and train talented students, who meet financial based eligibility requirements. Students may be awarded full or partial scholarships by invitation or audition only.

All Rock School students who receive a scholarship award, full or partial, are subject to a Scholarship Fee for the school year. The Scholarship Fee helps subsidize administrative expenses necessary to support The Rock School’s extensive scholarship programs. Scholarship students are not eligible for other School discounts in combination with his/her scholarship(s). Scholarships cover tuition only. Additional fees for performances or competitions are not included in the tuition scholarship award.

All Rock School students who receive a scholarship for the school year must submit paper registration and sign the The Rock School’s Scholarship Acceptance Agreement. Failure to comply with the scholarship terms will result in a verbal warning. Any such verbal warning may be followed by complete revocation of the scholarship award.

This applies to all dance, residence, and academics tuition. Discount cannot be used if student has already been awarded a scholarship.
