    Ajkun are not all they promise to be. Don’t waste your time or money on attending the audition. Take it from one who has wasted thousands. Ajkun Ballet Theatre takes unfair advantage on ballet students and their parents. Not a ballet company director in sight at any of their performances. Sav your money and do an audition tour instead.

    Ajkun are who they claim to be, take it from a dancer who found performing with the company in America a worth-while experience (where actually the ballet company directors were in sight for all classes, rehearsals and performances).
    Some dancers were even offered dance jobs after the company’s program, hardly a waste.
