International Audition Tour

Thank you to all who auditioned during the 2013/14 International Audition Tour! 

 Stay tuned for 2014/15 details!  


Each year, the RWB School sends a team of artistic faculty and administrative staff to cities across Canada and the United States to audition students for our Ballet Academic, Aspirant and Teacher Training Programs and, in some cities, to conduct master classes. Every student with a dream to dance or teach professionally is encouraged to attend.  


Students who participate in the 2014/15 International Audition Tour are auditioning to gain acceptance into Professional Division Summer Session (July 2015), which serves as the second stage of the two-part audition process.



HOW DO I REGISTER? Students wishing to audition and/or take a master class may pre-register by downloading a registration form and submitting it to the RWB School Office in one of the following ways:  

VIA EMAIL:          Scan and email to

VIA MAIL:          Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet School

Payment must be included with pre-registration.      


Please note that, while we recommend that students pre-register, it is not necessary. Anyone may show up the day of the audition and register on the spot. We will never turn anyone away!     


WHAT SHOULD I BRING? Students should wear a leotard (bodysuit), tights and soft shoes to the audition. Girls should have their hair in a tight bun; and boys with long hair should have it off their face. Pointe shoes are not required for any auditions or classes during our tour.   Students are asked to arrive one hour before their audition time with a recent photo of themselves facing front in 2nd position tendu, with arms in 2nd position. A photo may be taken at the audition for a fee of $5, to be paid at that time. Please do not send payment for photos in the mail.
