Certified elementary and middle school teachers, under the direction of the Okaloosa County School District, supervise the academic program. French, art and music are taught weekly.
Auditions will be held at 310 Perry Ave SE in Fort Walton Beach. Auditioning students must be registered in advance. Parents are invited to attend an open house on May 1 at 6:30 p.m. For more information or to register your child for the audition, please call Rhonda Starnes at 664-7787 or visit nfballet.org.
