Winter Term Auditions for 6-10 Year olds

Each spring, 6 to 10 year olds are invited to audition for the upcoming Winter Term (which begins in September). Auditions are held at SAB’s headquarters at Lincoln Center and at locations in Brooklyn, Queens, Harlem, Chinatown and the Bronx (Community Auditions). No previous training or experience is necessary for children in this age group.

Applicants may audition wherever it is convenient for them to do so. The audition format is the same at all locations. Auditions at SAB require pre-registration and include a $38.50 fee. Community Auditions are free and pre-registration is highly recommended but not required. Applicants should only sign up for one audition location. See below for information on the 2020 auditions for 6 to 10 year olds.
