Summer Admission

Auditions for International Students

International  students ( currently living outside of the continental US) who cannot attend one of SAB's auditions in person are invited to submit a video application. The video should be approximately 15 to 20 minutes in length and portray the student in practice clothes (girls in leotard and tights; boys in T-shirt and tights) in an abbreviated class with the full range of barre and center exercise and, for girls, pointe work.

Note: SAB is no longer accepting applications by video for the 2014 Summer Course.  Please visit our web site in late 2014 for information about applying for the 2015 Summer Course.


Results for all video applications

Application results will be sent via email to the applicant email address provided on the application form.   They will be distributed on a rolling basis beginning January 15 through March 1.  No results will be distributed before January 15.  If you do not receive an email containing your audition results by March 1, please send an email with the applicant’s name and email address to webhelp@sab.org
