Takarazuka Music School: The two-year school that all girls who wish to become Takarazuka actresses must attend.

To enter the school, applicants must pass two rounds of exams held in late March. Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 18, and are tested in classical ballet and vocals, as well as an interview stage. The results are announced dramatically on a certain day at the end of March, and currently about 50 students are accepted each year. The entrance ceremony is in April.

Students currently attend the school for two years before graduating and joining the Revue.

In the TMS, students study various styles of Western and Japanese dance, the piano, acting, vocals, English, tea ceremony, and various other things. Each class has two public performances, the Bunkasai in the winter before their graduation being a big event. They graduate in March and begin rehearsals for their hatsubutai line dance.
