Enrollment Information

Student Registration

Space in the Trudl Zipper Dance Institute is limited, and priority registration is given to our returning students. If you have never been enrolled in dance at the Colburn School, or if your attendance has lapsed for at least one year, then you are designated as a new student. New students must audition to be accepted unless they are registering for entry level classes (Creative Dance, Pre-Ballet I). The audition also determines placement in the proper course level.

The registration period for the 2019–20 year opens June 4, 2019 for returning students and August 19, 2019 for new students. To register, log into your existing account (returning students) or create an account (new students) with our online registration system ASAP Connected.
