National Audition Tour
The National Audition Tour is conducted during June-August each year, visiting major cities around Australia. Participants audition in 2021 for intake in 2022. The audition consists of a modified Classical class and a physical assessment. It is structured to assess a range of criteria, including coordination, musicality and physical suitability for the demands of The Australian Ballet School's programmes. No special preparation is required.
We are committed to diversity in dance and welcome auditions from First Nations, LGBTQI+ dancers and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. All dancers are given equal consideration.
