Admissions & Auditions

Admission

Admission to Alberta Ballet School's Professional Division Grade 7 - 12 programs is by artistic audition via our international audition tour, video or in person in Calgary.

Auditions for our Post-Graduate and Alberta Ballet Trainee program will be in conjunction with Alberta Ballet Company and held at a later date.

A successful audition invites students to attend our Summer Intensive program held annually each July in Calgary, Alberta.

Participation in the Summer Intensive allows artistic faculty the ability to assess how a student performs in class, reacts to corrections and adapts to the Professional Division environment.

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.

Audition

Alberta Ballet School will be across Canada in November 2019 and February 2020. Watch below for audition dates and times.

A successful audition invites you to our Summer Intensive July 2020 - a 4 week-long program that can be summer experience, or as stage 2 of the audition for entry to the full-year Professional Division program.
