Auditions for our summer program are open to all students (ages 7 & above) for the level suiting their skill, background, and degree of training. A national audition tour will be conducted January through March 2018. Those students unable to attend may submit a video audition or arrange for an individual evaluation by contacting Joanne Smith at or 215.587.6942. Video submissions should include barre and center work; there is a $35 video audition fee.

Applicants will receive result notification within two weeks of their audition. Space is limited and granted on a first-come, first-served basis. When full capacity is reached, remaining students will be placed on a wait list, so please be sure to register promptly in order to ensure your spot in the program.

Current students of The School of Pennsylvania Ballet are not required to audition and will be given priority enrollment over students from the national audition tour.

Acceptance to the summer intensive is competitive, and only the most proficient students are invited to participate. Select students from the summer program may be invited to attend The School of Pennsylvania Ballet’s full year program.

*Please note: auditions are not required for the children’s summer program (ages 2-7).
