Orlando Ballet School classes begin with the Enrollment Division and progress to the Pre-Professional Division. Each level follows a structured syllabus that recognizes cognitive, emotional and physical development. Students aged three to six are place by age while students aged seven and up are auditioned and placed by knowledge, ability and potential.

All students receive bi-annual progress reports and are advanced only when the teaching team believes more advanced work will be beneficial to the student.
