Enrolment is open to current and former dancers / pedagogues and choreographers, as well as to young ballet dancers who have just completed their secondary ballet education and wish to acquire an academic degree in ballet. Candidates who have finished / or only took classes at the Higher Ballet School of the Conservatory for Music in Ljubljana or some similar institution abroad can apply for formal or informal accreditation of prior learning.
