Q: I am a returning student. Does my I-20 automatically renew?
A: No. You need to obtain a new I-20 every year and fill out a new International Student Form (link).
Q: English is not my first language, is this acceptable?
A: Yes. Rock Students come from all over the world. Some students primarily speak non-English languages. They tend to learn a lot during their time here in class and socializing.

Q: When should I complete the International Student Form?

Q: I am attending the Summer Ballet Intensive for one week. Can I enter the U.S. on a B (tourist) visa?
A: No. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must enter the country with an M-1 visa to attend Summer Ballet Intensive classes at The Rock School.
