BRISBANE - 12 to 13 July 2018


The National Audition Tour is conducted during June – August each year, visiting major cities around Australia. Students can choose to audition in 2018 for intake in 2019.

The audition consists of a modified class and a physical assessment. The class is specially structured to assess a range of criteria including coordination, musicality and physical suitability for the demands of The Australian Ballet School's various programmes. No special preparation is required.

Full Time Programme (Melbourne)
Age at 30 June 2018: 13 to 18 years

Students who would like to study full time and join Levels 4 to 8 of the School should audition for the Full-Time Programme.

Intrastate / Interstate / International Training Programme (ITP) or After School Programme (ASP)
Age at 30 June 2018: 8 to 13 years

In addition to accepting international, interstate, and regional Victorian students, the School's ITP now offers the same opportunity to students from anywhere in Victoria, including Melbourne. Students from 8 to 13 years undertake an audition, and if successful, will be offered training options based on their age, location and ability. This arrangement offers greater access and training options to develop young dancers.
