We have reviewed your application and are delighted to offer your school a place on our roster for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. If your school would like to accept this invitation to enroll in the program(s) indicated in your acceptance email, please carefully review the following information and complete the steps below.
1. SUBMIT YOUR SCHOOL ENROLLMENT INFORMATION
Use the link below to submit classroom information for the program(s) your school is participating in. Once your enrollment form has been submitted, your school contact will receive an email to confirm its receipt and let you know if we have any questions.
2. SIGN AND RETURN THE LETTER OF AGREEMENT
Once we receive your enrollment information the school contact, principal and the participating classroom teachers will be asked to digitally sign a Letter of Agreement for your program. Your signatures on this document serve as an agreement between your school and NYCB to uphold the listed terms. Failure to uphold the terms of this Letter of Agreement may serve as grounds to cancel our partnership.
3. SUBMIT PAYMENT FOR SCHOOL RESIDENCY FEE
Along with your Letter of Agreement, you will receive an invoice. Payments can be made in the form of a check or a purchase order. If you are paying by purchase order and need a completed work order to do so, please send a written request via email to the Manager of School Programs.
4. SAVE THE DATE FOR PROGRAM PD
All New York City Ballet school residency programs begin with a Professional Development Session and a Pre-Program Planning Meeting. Every participating classroom teacher is required to attend both events regardless of past participation in a NYCB program. The dates of the PD session are listed below. The School Planning Meeting will be scheduled with your NYCB Teaching Artist in the week following the PD. For 2020-21, these events will be held virtually via Zoom. More information will be sent closer to the PD date.

5. SECURE BUSES/TRANSPORTATION
NYCB does not provide transportation to its school program events. It is each school’s responsibility to secure transportation for their students and teachers as needed. Event dates will be sent at the beginning of the school year.
6. PREPARE PERMISSION SLIPS
NYCB asks that all students participating in a residency program complete and return a permission slip for participation in workshops. A PDF of this release form will be sent to your school prior to the start of your program. We kindly ask that you collect and return the forms to the Manager of School Programs. Any additional permission slips required for program events or field trips are the responsibility of the school.
7. KEEP US INFORMED
Since most of the communication regarding the residency will take place through your school contact via email, it is important that we have current information regarding personnel and contact information. It is also important that you keep us informed about any changes that take place in your classroom enrollment.
We look forward to working with your school in the coming year. Should you have any questions while completing this form, please contact the New York City Ballet Education Department at 212-870-4078 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
