July 29th – August 2nd
Ages Approx. 16 – 21 (Levels 6 & Above)
Following our annual Summer Intensive, the Company Experience offers an additional week of professional ballet instruction for dancers ages approximately 16 – 21. This program provides advanced students and young professionals a great way to be seen by Pennsylvania Ballet’s artistic staff. Along with daily workshops, wherein students learn pieces from Pennsylvania Ballet’s repertoire, the week also features classes taught by Artistic Director Angel Corella as well as members of the Pennsylvania Ballet artistic staff. Company Experience will conclude with an informal showing on the last day of the program. Select students from Company Experience may be invited to attend The School of Pennsylvania Ballet’s full-year Pre-Professional or Trainee Programs.
Auditions are open to all male and female students ages 8-21. Students 12 years of age and older are encouraged to attend any audition on our Summer Intensive nation tour. Students ages 8-11 may only attend the Philadelphia auditions at SPB. All students ages 8-21 that are unable to attend an audition on our tour may submit a video audition by using the video submission link found on our audition date list. Select students from the Summer Intensive may be invited to attend The School of Pennsylvania Ballet’s full-year Pre-Professional or Trainee Programs.
Applicants will receive result notification via email within two weeks of their audition or video submission date. Once accepted into the Summer Intensive, all students must register within four weeks of their admission date as space is granted on a first-come, first-served basis. When full capacity is reached, the remaining students will be placed on a wait list. Please be sure to register and submit your deposit on time in order to ensure your spot in the program.
Current students of The School of Pennsylvania Ballet are not required to audition unless they want to be considered for a scholarship. Current students MUST register prior by February 23rd to secure a spot. Students registering by February 1st will be given priority enrollment over students from the national audition tour.
Pennsylvania Ballet’s summer intensive is unable to provide housing for boys and girls younger than age 12. For students age 12 and older, however, we can provide fully supervised housing at Moore College of Art and Design. Moore College of Art and Design is centrally located in Logan Square, within walking distance of our studios.
Summer Intensive housing includes a full meal plan and coin-op laundry facilities. A number of weekend excursions are offered at an additional charge to complete a fun and exhilarating summer experience. Additional information on summer housing will be provided to students upon admittance into the program.
