BBASI auditions are a great opportunity to meet Program staff and learn about the different programs. Dancers should treat the audition as a class and try their individual best. BBASI staff respect that dancers come from different training backgrounds, are at different levels, and vary in age. Each dancer is evaluated within the context of their individual abilities. Successful BBASI candidates demonstrate: age-appropriate skills, musicality, commitment to achieving progress, and appreciation for a collaborative environment.  (Please note:  During BBASI all ballet classes are taught by the Bolshoi Ballet Academy's Teachers.  However, as the Academy is in session during the auditions tour, local teachers instruct our auditions.)

To register for an audition:

Advance online registration is highly recommended.   Please keep in mind that the Program reserves the right to limit on-site registration.

  1. New families will be prompted to create a profile on the Program's Registration Portal.  Returning families should use their existing profiles on the Program's Portal.

  2. Once logged in to your profile, click on the "enrollment" tab. To enroll for a specific audition, please be guided by your dancer's age as of June 22, 2020.

  3. You will be prompted to choose a date/location/time and pay the $35 fee.

  4. If you upload your headshot and first arabesque photos according to the instructions in the Forms tab, you will NOT need to bring hard copies with you to the audition.

Notification of Results:

Results will be notified within 2 weeks from the date of your LIVE or VIDEO audition, via the email you entered at registration.
