Auditions are not required for The School’s Children’s Program (ages 3 to 8 years). As well, this program is not part of the graded curriculum at The School of Pennsylvania Ballet; therefore, Children’s Program students seeking admission to the Student Program will need to be reevaluated by our faculty (in lieu of an audition) at the end of the program year in order to determine if they are ready for advancement.

If you are interested in auditioning for our Student or Professional hybrid programs simply contact Joanne Smith at or 215.587.6942. Prospective students are welcome to email a link to a recent audition video for consideration. If you choose to send a video please be sure to include the following information:
