Auditions for AMPA - Co-Ed Pre-Professional Ballet Program
Boys Attend Tuition-Free*

Final Audition to be Included in 2015-2016 Academic Class

Greensboro, NC (August 21, 2015) - Artistic Motion Preparatory Academy (AMPA), a division of Artistic Motion School of Arts (AMSA), is proud to announce auditions for their pre-professional ballet program for the 2015-2016 academic year. This is the final audition to be a part of the 2015-2016 academic class.

AMPA offers small, daily classes based on the Vaganova syllabus with world-renowned teachers. Dancers, ages 9-18, will receive 9-20 hours (depending upon level) of instruction each week. Classes include: ballet technique; pre-pointe/pointe; variations; partnering; character; conditioning; contemporary; jazz; tap; piano; and drama for dancers. Students currently enrolled in AMPA's inaugural year are already showing tremendous signs of success with 100% acceptance rate for all students who auditioned for summer ballet programs, including Bolshoi Ballet and Kirov Ballet Academy. Some students were also awarded merit scholarships and acceptance to year-round programs.

While the program is tuition-based, boys accepted into the pre-professional training program will attend tuition-free! Some fees will still apply, but tuition will be waived. *Boys will only be responsible for the registration fee ($35), performance fee ($35), costumes (varies), and piano ($120/month).

AMPA held its first two auditions on March 29th and June 7th. Because of the increasing interest in the program, AMPA has expanded its program to include three additional levels of training for the 2015-2016 academic year. An introductory level has been added to accommodate younger dancers, as well as two additional levels to accommodate older dancers interested in pre-professional training.

"We have had an exciting first year and are looking forward to expanding our program to include more advanced dancers and additional levels of training. Current 2015-2016 enrollment has more than doubled from our first year and we are hoping to include even more new students, "says Alejandra Dore, Artistic Motion Preparatory Academy Director. "I am honored to lead our teachers and students as we continue training a new generation of professional dancers."Dore's instructional team will include professionals in the fields of dance, music, and drama.
