Academic Levels



Class Placement

Students are placed on an individual basis and will be advanced at the Director’s discretion.


We cannot be responsible for children left unattended. Students must be supervised by an adult until their class begins. Prompt pick-up after class in the downstairs studio area is required.

Please Note: For your children’s safety, we require that ALL children must ALWAYS be picked up from class downstairs, in the studio area, not upstairs or outside. Please instruct your child to wait downstairs. Do not allow children to be unattended in the parking lot. Parking in the no-parking zone is forbidden and endangers all of our children. Please park your car and come inside to pick up your child.

Metropolitan Ballet Academy’s Student Showcase is held annually in late spring. While participation in Showcase is not mandatory, it offers students a rewarding, professional quality performance experience. In order to choreograph, prepare costumes and plan Showcase, we require students to commit by December 1 by returning a permission form and theatre fee of approximately $100. Performance in Showcase is contingent upon adequate class attendance.
