For entry in school year 2021/2022
All students aged 11–18 years
Application deadline March 15, 2021
- We will begin to accept applications from December 2020 for entry to our school in August 2021. We will not be evaluating any applications before December, so please do not send them before then.
- Please download our application form, which we will require returned with the three requested photos, as stated on the form. We would like the form and the three photos sent as email attachments please (not per we transfer or other internet platforms).
- We will also require a short film of all students applying. The film should please be of your classical ballet class showing a short barre, adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegro and pointe work (for girls over the age of 13 years). If you are 14 years old or older, please include a classical variation, filmed in leotard and tights (no skirts or tutus for girls). Please send a film as a YouTube or Vimeo link (not per we transfer or through other internet platforms). Normally a film can only be accepted as a pre-audition, all invited applicants will be requested to be at the audition in Hamburg in person, if this is possible at that time.
- Our audition is by invitation only.
- We have an age limit of 18 years on or before March 1, 2021.
We will then let you know as soon as possible whether we will be inviting you to our audition in spring 2021.
N:B: Due to the current pandemic, it will be decided closer to the time whether an audition can be held in person in the Ballettzentrum Hamburg or whether submitted films will be assessed.
We support the International Audition Pre-selection Guidelines.
