National Ballet School holding auditions in Sudbury this week

Minimum age to audition is 10 

If you're a young aspiring ballet dancer, get your pointe shoes out.

Canada's National Ballet School is holding auditions at Dance Evolution in Sudbury this week as part of a cross-country tour.

Open classes take place Nov. 19 (3:30 to 7 p.m.), with auditions on Nov. 20 (9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.). 

Auditions for NBS’ full-time Professional Ballet Program (students in grades 6 – 12) and Post-Secondary Program (high school graduates) are specially designed ballet classes where dancers are assessed for quality of movement, co-ordination and overall suitability for the demands of classical ballet. 

The minimum age to audition is 10, and no prior ballet training is required for students aged 12 and under.

Junior and senior dance students are also welcome to participate in NBS open classes, which are designed for students to attend regardless of their intent to audition for the full-time program.
