How to participate in an audition?
Once a year, in March / April, the Czech National Ballet Preparatory School announces a regular audition for new applicants (girls aged 6 and 7, boys aged 7 and 8). If need be, we announce a supplementary audition, which can also be participated in by older children who are at the level of the grade corresponding to their age.
The half-yearly tuition fee for grades 1 to 5 is CZK 3,000 (two 60-minute lessons a week), for advanced pupils it is CZK 4,500 (two 90-minute lessons a week).
