Audition Details for Academic Year 2019/20
To audition for the Scholars Schemes across the UK, students are expected to have passed with Distinction the following grades.
- Juniors: Grade 2
- Mids: Grade 4
- Seniors: Intermediate Foundation
- Jazz: Grade 4
- Junior Male: Grade 2
- Senior Male: Grade 6
Male students should apply for their relevant level and will take part in the same audition as female students.
We would encourage all students who feel they are able and would like to take part in an audition to apply. bbodance are looking for students who have a love of dance with good performance quality, artistry and technique, as well as those who have already achieved high marks in their bbodance exams.
We also expect all auditionees to be a student at a bbodance School or with a bbodance Registered Teacher. bbodance will check with your listed teacher that they have approved of your application before the audition.
Students already on the scheme will not need to re-audition, unless they would like to switch genres (e.g. from Ballet to Jazz).
Parents/Guardians should be made aware of the monthly travelling costs and annual fee before committing to the scheme. The cost of the Scholars Scheme for 2019/20 will be £300 (classes only). Alternatively, you may register for both the Scholars classes AND Scholars Weekend at the same time, for a discounted rate. The cost of this package will be £370.
For provisonal dates for next year's classes (including dates for Scholars Weekend which Scholars are encouraged to attend) please see 'Class Information'.
