Admission

Admission to Alberta Ballet School's 2020-2021 Summer Intensive, Professional Division Grade 7-12 program, Post Graduate and Alberta Ballet Trainee program is by virtual audition in November 2020. More information on additional dates early 2021 will be released shortly.

A successful audition invites students to participate our Summer Intensive program held annually each July in Calgary, Alberta. The 2021 Summer Intensive will be July 5 - 30th. The format of our 2021 Summer Intensive (in-person, or virtual) will be determined at a later date.

After Summer Intensive, students and families will be notified of their acceptance status to the full-year Professional Division programs. Upon acceptance, a formal response by the student is required in order to officially register him/her for the program. At this time, students will receive an Alberta Ballet School registration package to complete and return in addition to the official student handbook.
