Important Audition Information for Auditions at SAB

  • ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL AUDITIONS AT SAB AND SPACE IS LIMITED.
  • Applicants who live closer to one of the cities on the National Audition Tour are encouraged to attend one of those auditions as space is limited at the NYC auditions.
  • Registered applicants should arrive 45 minutes prior to the posted audition time to check-in and receive their audition number.
  • The fee for an Audition at SAB in NYC is $45 if you pre-pay online and $60 if you pay at the audition. The fee is not refundable. (An additional $5 administrative fee will also be charged to 12 year olds applying to BOTH the Young Dancer Series AND Summer Course in NYC)
  • Students may attend only one summer program audition each year. (Applicants who attend an audition in one of the National Audition Tour cities are not eligible to audition by appointment at SAB during the same audition season.)

A note about pre-registering online:
You will need a username or password in order to complete the registration form. Those of you who have previously created a username and password on sab.org should use the same information to login and begin the form.  Failure to do so will create a conflict with your existing user account and will affect our ability to distribute your results in a timely fashion.  If this is your first time applying, you must create an sab.org user name and password. The user account  must be in the student's name, even if a parent or guardian is completing the registration form. Parents who are registering multiple siblings must create separate accounts for each student.  Follow on-screen instructions for "logging out" and returning to the form after completing your first form.
