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 $38.50 fee.  Community Auditions are free and pre-registration is optional. See below for information on the 2020 auditions for 6 to 10 year olds.

Pre-registration for the Spring 2020 auditions will begin in late February.



The School will be holding auditions on the following dates in 2020 for the specified age groups:

Monday, April 6, 2020

Monday, April 20, 2020

Auditions begin at 4 p.m each day.  All applicants must pre-register online (after February 2020) and schedule a specific audition time on the applicable date. There is a $38.50 fee for all auditions at SAB. You must pay this fee by credit card at the time you submit your pre-registration form.  Please see the bottom of the page for general audition information.
