July 31-August 4, 2017

For advanced students and young professionals ages 16 and above, we offer the Company Experience, a unique week of instruction which provides a great way to be seen by Pennsylvania Ballet's artistic staff. This week of professional ballet training includes classes taught by Artistic Director, Angel Corella and artistic staff of Pennsylvania Ballet, as well as daily workshops where dancers learn pieces from the Company's repertoire. 

Tuition is $650 for the week.


Auditions are open to male and female students, ages 16 and above, for the Company Experience.  Select students may be chosen and invited to attend The School of Pennsylvania Ballet full year program.

Students who cannot attend the National Audition Tour may submit a video audition or schedule an audition in person by contacting Joanne Smith at or 215.587.6942

Applicants will receive notice of the results within two weeks of their auditions.  When accepted to The School of Pennsylvania Ballet Company Experience, students must register within four weeks from the date of admission and space is granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the class reaches full capacity, students will be placed on a waiting list. Please be sure to register and send your deposit on time to ensure your place in the program.

Students who are currently enrolled in our school are not required to audition. While we do not require current students to enroll in the Summer Course, we strongly encourage them to do so. Current students are given priority enrollment over students who are invited after the National Audition Tour.  Registration forms will be emailed to all current families in mid-January and will be due no later than February 18, 2017.  Late registrations will be held on a waitlist until after the National Audition Tour is complete and then students will be accepted if space is available.

For Company Experience students we can provide fully supervised and chaperoned housing at Moore College of Art and Design. A secure and comfortable dormitory within walking distance of our studios and many other attractions. Students live on centrally located Logan Square, close to Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute (science and technology museum), the Museum of Natural History, the Barnes Foundation, the Rodin Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. They can enjoy nature in nearby Fairmount Park and stroll along the Schuylkill River on newly constructed trails. The theater district is 5 blocks away and the open air Mann Center for the Performing Art is a short ride away and offers many popular free concerts.  Philadelphia is a vibrant and enjoyable environment in the summer.

Company Experience housing includes air conditioned rooms, a full meal plan, and free laundry facilities. A number of weekend activities are offered to complete an exciting and fun summer experience.  More information on summer housing is provided to students after their admittance into the program.
