Admission is not an exact science. To gauge a student's potential for success within our program requires a very thorough and complete evaluation. Students must be between five and nineteen years old to apply.

New Student Admission

New students are evaluated for admission through a variety of paperwork, interviews and an audition, as outlined below:

1. Submit the required application and fee by April 1.

2. Your family will be contacted by CBI to schedule an admissions interview once admission paperwork has been received.

3. Attend the priority audition on Sunday April 15, at 1:00pm.

4. Admission status letters will be mailed on April 16. Enrollment fees are due May 18.

Missed the deadline? Applications will be considered outside of this timeline only if there are open spots still remaining in the program. Private auditions will be scheduled for late applicants if space permits.

Level Placement

New students and continuing students will be placed in the stage of training appropriate to their development as evaluated.
