Auditions for 6 to 10 year olds

Each Spring, 6 to 10 year olds are invited to audition for the upcoming Winter Term (which begins in September). Auditions are held at SAB and at locations in Brooklyn, Queens, Harlem, Chinatown and the Bronx. No previous training or experience is necessary for children in this age group. 


Applicants may choose to audition at the School or at one of our Community Audition locations if it is more convenient.  The audition format is the same at all locations.  Auditions at SAB require pre-registration and include a $35 fee.  Community Auditions are free and pre-registration is optional.  Applicants should only sign up for one audition location. If you wish to change your location after pre-registering, you can email to notify us of the change. Applicants switching from a Community Audition location to an audition at SAB will be required to pay the $35 audition fee on the day of the audition. We regret that refunds cannot be provided to applicants who register for an audition at SAB but subsequently elect to attend a Community Audition. See below for information on the 2018 auditions for 6 to 10 year olds.

Note: All 2018 spring auditions for 6-10 year olds are now closed.  Please check back in early 2019 for Audition information for the 2019-20 Winter Term.
