Congratulations to everyone who auditioned for the 2021-22 bbodance Scholar Scheme! Existing and new Scholars may now reserve their place until 1 September via the button below. 

Please carefully review the information on this page before registering.

Reserve your Scholars place

The bbodance Scholars Scheme is open to the most talented students of bbodance Registered Teachers and Associate Members. In order to join the Scheme, students need to be recommended by their teachers and audition successfully.

From Autumn 2022, all students are auditioned annually for a place on the Scheme. 

Please look at the Class Information for further information on the level required for each scheme.
We encourage all students who feel that they are able and would like to take part in an audition to apply.

The audition class will be non-syllabus based and will last approximately 1 ¼ hours. After which, all students should receive their results within four weeks of the audition date.

Students auditioning for Ballet should wear ballet tights, their usual ballet class leotard and ballet shoes. Please bring your pointe shoes if you are auditioning for the Senior Ballet scheme. 

Students auditioning for Jazz may choose what to wear for their audition but please avoid baggy items of clothing (leotard and tights or jazz pants are ideal). We do require students to wear jazz shoes for their audition. 


Audition to become a Scholar


Auditions for the 2023-24 Scholars scheme will be held on Friday 2nd June (Birmingham Royal Ballet studios) and Saturday 3rd June (bbodance HQ, London). Scholars can choose to audition at either location.
