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 for Jazz consists of monthly classes taught by excellent faculty that expose students to diverse techniques and styles. Classes include repertoire from current West End shows, such as Musical Theatre.

Unlike the bbodance Ballet Scheme, which is divided into age groups, there is only one bbodance Jazz Scholars Scheme. The Scheme is suitable for students who are at least 13 years old. It is recommended that they have taken a Grade 4 level exam in Jazz or an equivalent genre — for example, Modern.


bbodance Scholars classes are held in London and Manchester. 


The bbodance Scholars Scheme is available for all students under the age of 18 who have auditioned successfully. Students graduate from the Scheme at the end of the academic year that they turn 18.


The bbodance Scholars Scheme for Ballet consists of monthly classes taught by excellent faculty that are designed to refine students' skills. Classes include repertoire and are accompanied by a pianist.

The bbodance Ballet Scheme is available for the following categories:

  • Junior 
  • Mid
  • Senior

The Junior Ballet Scheme is the introduction to bbodance Scholars. It's suitable for students who have achieved a Distinction in Grade 2 Ballet.

The Mid Ballet Scheme
is a stepping stone between the Junior and Senior Schemes. It's suitable for students who have achieved a Distinction in Grade 4 Ballet. This Scheme was introduced in 2012.

The Senior Scheme is the final step of the Scholars programme. It's designed to challenge students and support their vocational training. This Scheme is suitable for students who have achieved a Distinction in Intermediate Foundation Ballet.


bbodance Scholars classes are held in London and Manchester. 


The bbodance Scholars Scheme is available for all students under the age of 18 who have auditioned successfully. Students graduate from the Scheme at the end of the academic year that they turn 18.


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.

Once accepted, students do not need to audition again in order to pass to the next academic year; the only instance when an audition may be needed is if students want to change Schemes (from Ballet to Jazz, or vice-versa).


Criteria

To audition for the bbodance Scholars Scheme, it is recommended that students have passed the following grades:

  • Juniors — Grade 2
  • Mids — Grade 4
  • Seniors — Intermediate Foundation
  • Jazz — Grade 4 (13 years old & above)

We encourage all students who feel that they are able and would like to take part in an audition to apply.


All students should receive their results within four weeks of the audition date.

Registration to audition for the 2022-23 bbodance Scholars Scheme will open here next spring. Watch this space!
