Audition Dates

Full-Time Training Audition Dates 

As of the 2nd December and following the second national lockdown, the Government has placed Birmingham in Tier 3 of the national plan to reduce the spread of the coronavirus infection.  

In the interests of keeping everyone as safe as possible and limiting travel, we have decided that we will not be holding any in-person preliminary auditions for our full-time training programmes. This includes all audition locations which are; Birmingham, London, Dublin and Edinburgh. 

We invite all applicants to submit a video link as part of their application, this applies to any dancer who might have already applied or are about to apply for one of our full time programmes.   

If you have already submitted an online application form, you will be contacted directly by our Registrar with details of how to send your video link. 

To help everyone in this process the deadline for applications has been extended to Friday 8th January 2021 4pm GMT.
