Assessment or Trial Class

New students will be  assessed by a teacher in a pre-assigned class prior to enrolling. Each of our highly accomplished instructors will take age, ability and maturity into account when assigning a grade level to a new student.

A trial class or assessment will also give you and your child the opportunity to decide whether TACPA/TBSA  is the right school for your family before you commit fully.

New students are not required to wear our uniform while being assessed or attending their trial class,  however, proper ballet wear is required: 

For girls: Leotard, tights, and ballet shoes. Hair should be worn up and away from the face and neck. 

For boys: Tights, a plain tee, and ballet shoes. Younger boys may wear pants or shorts in place of tights.

Please arrive 20 minutes early for your trial class/assessment to allow time to park, fill out paperwork, and meet the assessment teacher. We will not admit a child into a class for a trial if the class has already begun. We also do not allow trials in classes which are full.
