Auditions for International Students
The School welcomes international students between the ages of 12 and 18 to audition for the Summer Course either in person at one of our international or national audition cities, or by submitting a video application to the School.
INTERNATIONAL AUDITION TOUR
Each fall, SAB travels to 2 to 3 cities internationally to audition applicants in person for the following year's Summer Course. The cities and schedule vary from year to year. For information about the upcoming International Auditions, please click here.
VIDEO APPLICATION PROCEDURE

International students (those residing outside the continental United States) may audition by submitting a video on a DVD in American standard format (NTSC) in lieu of an in-person audition. The video should portray the student in practice clothes (girls in leotard and tights; boys in T-shirt and tights) in an abbreviated class with the full range of barre and center exercise and, for girls, pointe work.
Audition packages for international students interested in attending the 2013 Summer Course should be submitted between November 15, 2012, and January 31, 2013.
