In-Person Auditions return for SAB’s 2023 Summer Programs

SAB is thrilled to announce the return of in-person auditions for our 2023 Summer Programs. For the first time since 2020, the School will once again embark on our National Audition Tour this January visiting 16 cities across the United States. Auditions will also be held at our New York City headquarters on various dates throughout January. Additionally, any US-based applicant who is unable to attend an audition in person and all international applicants are invited to apply online by video. The School is thrilled to offer more application options than ever before for our summer programs.

In 2023, SAB will offer two summer programs for ballet students interested in getting a taste of the School’s year-round curriculum.  The week-long New York Junior Session for 10-12 year olds offers an abbreviated introduction to SAB’s training and faculty at the School’s headquarters in Manhattan. Our flagship 5-week Summer Course for 12-18 years offers offers intensive exposure to SAB’s year-round curriculum and provides an opportunity for students to experience the incredible cultural offerings of New York City. The Summer Course is also a critical access point for those interested in becoming full-time students at SAB as all summer students are evaluated as candidates for the SAB’s Winter Term.  As a bonus, 12-year olds can apply to and, if accepted, attend both summer programs.

Beginning on January 7, teams of faculty and admin staff will be hitting the road every weekend in January to visit 16 cities across the US on the National Audition Tour. From Boston to San Francisco, applicants from all over the country are invited to join us for an audition close to their hometowns. Pre-registration for our tour locations is highly recommended. Benefits include discounted audition fees and expedited results. But walk-in applicants are always welcome at our tour locations! The full city listing, audition information, and pre-registration link are available from our summer admissions page.

SAB will also hold auditions at our headquarters in Manhattan every Wednesday and Friday throughout the month of January, plus two select dates especially for our youngest summer applicants. Pre-registration is required for auditions at SAB and space is limited. Audition dates, information and pre-registration are available here.  

While we are happy to offer in-person summer auditions once again, we know there are still plenty of students who are not able to travel to a tour city or visit us in New York. For any applicant who is unable to attend an in-person audition, we are pleased to accept a video application. The deadline to submit video applications is Sunday, January 29. Guidelines and tips for creating audition videos are included here.

Whether on tour, at SAB, or virtually, we encourage dancers to audition for the opportunity to join us this summer for an intensive training experience unlike any other. We hope to see you this winter!
