Commuter Students

In addition to its Full Residential Program, the Kirov Academy of Ballet offers three year-round program options for commuter students:

  • The Academic and Artistic Commuter Program is for nonresidential students who live off-campus with family or friends in the DC metro area and commute daily to KAB to receive both their academic education and ballet training at the Academy. The total cost for enrollment as a new student in the Academic and Artistic Commuter Program (inclusive of administrative fees, etc.) is $34,800.
  • The Ballet-Only Commuter Program is for students who live off-campus with family or friends in the DC metro area and commute daily to KAB solely to receive ballet training. The total cost for enrollment as a new student in the Ballet-Only Commuter Program (inclusive of administrative fees, etc.) is $21,800.
  • The Pre-Professional Program is for dancers who already possess a high school diploma (or its equivalency) and who desire further ballet training to gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of the Vaganova Method. Pre-Professional students must find their own off-campus accommodations and transportation. The cost for enrollment is coming soon.

* Meals are not included in the tuition for commuter students. Meal tickets can be purchased on-site for $3.00 per meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner).
