Due to ongoing concerns relating to COVID-19, ABT’s 2021 Summer Intensive National Audition Tour will be held virtually.
Audition classes will take place via Zoom during weekends in January and February. Students will participate in audition classes based on their age at the time of the audition.
The Virtual Audition Tour is a dancer’s opportunity to audition for all ABT Summer Programs including Summer Intensives, the Collegiate Summer Intensive, and Young Dancer Summer Workshops. Auditions are open to students of all genders who have achieved intermediate or advanced levels of ballet training.
Video auditions will be accepted for the 2021 Virtual Audition Tour. All students must audition as part of the 2021 Virtual Audition Tour, regardless of previous participation. Participation in ABT Summer Programs is by audition and acceptance only. Students may only audition once each year. Auditioning on any date will allow you to be considered for all Summer Intensive Programs and merit-based scholarships. Online pre-registration is required for all auditions. Audition class sizes will be limited.
