Acceptance into the ABT William J. Gillespie School Levels 1A and above (ages 8-18) is by audition only.
Students ages 3-8 may enroll in Pre-Primary or Primary levels during open enrollment periods. 

Current students are evaluated at the end of the school year during regular classes, and are pre-placed for the following school year in their Spring Evaluation. Current students have approximately 2-3 weeks of priority enrollment after which enrollment opens to the public.

Mid-Year Enrollment Opens: Monday, November 28th

Students ages 3-8 with no previous training can enroll without audition in the Pre-Primary and Primary levels. All other potential students must audition.  Click here for audition information

Once a class section is full, you will only be allowed to register in the alternate section of the class (if available) or place your child on the waitlist for the desired section. If you are on the waitlist for a particular section, there is no guarantee that a spot will open up for you. ABT Gillespie School Administration will contact you if a spot becomes available.
