SCHOOL YEAR AUDITIONS

Auditions are not required for the school’s Children’s Program (ages 3 to 8 years). As well, this program is not part of the graded curriculum at the School of Philadelphia Ballet, therefore, Children’s Program students seeking admission to the Student Program will need to be reevaluated by our faculty (in lieu of an audition) at the end of the school year in order to determine if they are ready for advancement. New students interested in auditioning for the Student or Professional Programs should contact Joanne Smith at [email protected] or 215.587.6942.
