THE COURSE AND AUDITIONS

The course is run on Sundays over three terms, commencing in June 2023 and culminating with the production week at The Crescent Theatre, Birmingham. We run our classes, rehearsals and auditions in beautiful, fully equipped studios at Elmhurst Ballet School and BOA Academy in Birmingham. Please note, this course is in no way affiliated with Elmhurst Ballet School or BOA Academy.

On The Audition Day

Candidates will register in the reception area. We ask that all parents leave the site once children have safely entered the audition. After the audition, students will be brought to the reception area for collection.

Audition Times

Timings for preliminary auditions (18th Feb & 18th March):

 

Group A (13+yrs): 10am – 12pm

Group B (7-9yrs): 12:30pm – 2:30pm

Group C (10-12yrs): 3pm – 5pm

 

The timings for the Final Auditions (23rd April) will be announced after the preliminary auditions have taken place.

What To Wear

For the audition, we recommend that dancers arrive with their ballet uniform underneath their clothes, with their hair and personal presentation in place as parents are not permitted to enter with the students.

Audition Répertoire

As part of the audition process, candidates will perform a piece from Snow White, which they will learn during the audition.

Notification of Placement

Results for the auditions will be emailed on the following dates:

 

Prelim 1: candidates will be notified on 4th March 2023.

Prelim 2: candidates will be notified on 8th April 2023.

Final Audition: candidates will be notified on 7th May 2023.

 

Please Note: due to the high demand for this programme, not all candidates will be successful at the preliminary auditions or the final auditions – the artistic team have to make some very difficult decisions during the audition process.

Fees

Fees are £900, payable at the beginning of the course or via monthly direct debit spread over 8 months.

 

Students will be required to supply their own shoes, tights/socks and weekly MTB practice clothes.

 

On accepting a place, a non-refundable deposit of £100.00 is required and this will be deducted from the total fees. Should a student have to leave after their place has been accepted, the deposit will unfortunately be forfeited and is non-refundable.

Rehearsal Dates

Please note, class times and dates may change throughout the term but prior notice will be given to all students. High attendance is extremely important for this production.
