Ballet Talk for Dancers

ABT Jackie Onassis School

If I recall correctly, they used to have 3 or 4 levels in the pre-pro division anyway, so it seems like a revert to that based on the schedule.

Does JKO accept dancers if they only have their senior year remaining, or do they usually want them to start younger?  Thank you!

They accepted a student from The HARID Conservatory, the summer after her Junior year in high school. She did one year in JKO as a senior in high school, one year in Studio Co. and is now in the corps de ballet of ABT. It is pretty tough to get into ABT without going through either JKO or the Studio Co. They currently have one of our young men in the Studio Co who will hopefully receive his corps de ballet contact soon. Who knows with COVID.

Does anyone know how many students from the children’s division made it into the pre-prof division last year (2018-2019) & this current year?

Wondering the same!

I would suggest you call JKO to get the actual answer to your question. What you will not know is the enrollment versus how many simply chose not to continued in ballet, how many actually wanted to attend the professional division and how many were invited to attend.
