About the 2020/21 Audition Tour
Each year the RWB School travels in search of talented dancers to join one of three full-time professional programs: Ballet Academic (grade 6 and up), Aspirant (post-secondary), and Teacher Training (post-secondary). Auditions are typically held in cities across Canada and in the United States from October to January and include Q & A sessions as well as Master classes in some cities. Students who are unable to attend an online audition classes may send in a Video Application, which will be accepted until May 1, 2021. After the audition process, students recognized as having potential for professional training are invited to attend Summer Session, which serves as a second step in the audition process. Running throughout the month of July 2021 in Winnipeg, Summer Session allows students to experience life at the RWB firsthand. After the intensive Summer Session, students who are deemed to be a fit for one of the RWB School’s professional programs will be accepted into Regular Session, which runs from September 2021 to June 2022.
