Auditions for the School’s full-time Professional Ballet Program (students in grades 6 – 12) and Post-Secondary Program (high-school graduates) take the form of a specially designed ballet class where dancers are assessed for quality of movement, coordination and overall suitability for the demands of classical ballet. The minimum age to audition is 10, and no prior ballet training is required for students aged 12 and under.

Open Classes are designed for junior and senior dance students regardless of their intent to audition for the full-time program and are offered as an outreach component of the National Audition Tour.
