National Audition Tour
The National Audition Tour is conducted during May-July each year, visiting major cities around Australia. Participants audition in 2022 for intake in 2023. 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 programs. No special preparation is required.
We are committed to playing our role in increasing diversity in dance and welcome auditions from dancers of all cultures and orientations. All dancers are given equal consideration.
Children of eligible age may audition for any of the below Training Programs. Successful auditionees will be offered training options based on their age, ability and location/accommodation requirements.
