Admissions & Auditions

Video auditions are still open to join us at Alberta Ballet School

We are now auditioning for the 2024 Summer Intensive and the 2024-2025 Professional Division program.

The Summer Intensive is a great option for dance students to explore a short-term commitment to intensive professional ballet training.

The 2024 Summer Intensive takes place twice, June 24th- July 12, and again July 15th through August 2nd in Calgary, Alberta. This 3-week program includes Ballet, Pointe Work, Pas de Deux (for select levels), Repertoire, Variations, Contemporary, Character Dance and Body Conditioning.

It's also an opportunity to be considered for placement in our full-year Professional Division Program.
