QBSC accepts aspiring young dancers between grades 6 and 12. Students are placed within levels of the program based on ability.
Quinte Ballet School offers the highest calibre of dance training to students through three programs of instruction:

Throughout the school year, students of the Quinte Ballet School of Canada reside with local families. Providing a family environment to dance students can be a rewarding experience for all involved in the homestay relationship. To facilitate the finding of suitable billets for the students, QBSC has established a recruitment and application process to provide parents/guardians with a list from which to select a potential homestay.
