2018 INTERNATIONAL AUDITION TOUR

Admittance into the summer intensive program is by audition at one of our 18 audition locations or by video audition. Houston Ballet Academy students enrolled for the 2018 Spring Semester do not need to audition for the summer program and summer placement will be emailed to current students in December. 

The six-week summer intensive program for Levels 5 - 8 is June 18 - July 27, 2018. Level 5 students have the option of attending six weeks or the three-week program June 18-July 7, 2018. 

The Lower School summer intensive programs are June 4 – June 16, 2018 and August 6 - August 18, 2018. Auditions for the Lower School program are only held in Houston.

 

Pre-registration: Pre-registration will open on November 1, 2017.  Online preregistration is strongly encouraged, but not required. Preregistration is available for each city until midnight on the Tuesday prior to each audition. Preregistration fee is nonrefundable $35 and in-person registration fee is nonrefundable $40. (Due to the currency exchange rate, students registering the day of at one of our Australian locations will need to pay $45 AUS.) You may only audition in one city. You must audition in your age group based on your age the day of the audition. Students that are 11 years old at the time of the audition but will be 12 by the first day of the intensive may audition in the 12+ age group at audition sites other than Houston.
