Thank you for the update HereKitttKitty.   Was there any partnering, and if so do you know for what ages?

They didn’t do partnering in either level. I think last year they opened up one of the Sunday Intensives to boys for free and then were able to have partnering. I think it was one of the last in the series.

According to DD there were only 3 boys there total Sunday, two in one level and one in the other (I forget which), so no partnering.

Forgot to mention that I was told the March date will have technique, pointe, modern, and repertory.

Since the ABT Gillespie School still doesn’t have its own heading under Pre-Professional schools, I will share some new information here, in case anyone is considering auditioning in May. This fall instead of adding a Level 7, the school will be following the new structure at the JKO school and will switch to Upper Level 1 and Upper Level 2 classes for their pre-professional division. Unlike JKO, the Gillespie School will keep Level 4 (at least for the coming year), but I believe it will go back to being considered part of the children’s division. I have a theory about why this is, but I’ll keep it to myself since it is just speculation. Upper Level 2 classes will start at 1:00, so students in the highest level will need to do some sort of alternative schooling.

Just got an updated letter stating that Levels 3B, 4, Upper 1 and Upper 2 will be considered pre-professional for the coming year.
