- Setting Description:
- The Open Program is designed as a 4-year renewable program that may be initially applied for in 3, 6 or 12 month study sessions. In this program, students are required to take 52 classes per month. The majority of our classes are 1.5 hours each, but some of the stretch, yoga and other strength building classes are only 1 hour long. You will be required to take a minimum of 10 - one and a half hour classes, and 3 - one hour classes per week. The one hour classes can be substituted for hour and a half classes, but 13 classes will still be the requirement. This program begins on the first of every month and ends on the appropriate last day of the calendar month. Extensions are required between each session and students may request to transfer to other in-house Programs. Please note that some Programs require an audition to be accepted.
