International auditions

RBS-PHO-9-4-2016-15-JP-8

Our international preliminary auditions for full-time training will be held for applicants in Portugal, Australia, Italy, Japan and Korea in 2020/21.

We want aspiring young dancers, whose dream is to come to The Royal Ballet School, to have the opportunity to present their talent and potential closer to home. These preliminary auditions are run separately to our main auditions process. All successful candidates will attend a final audition in London.

Please note that international applicants can instead choose to submit a preliminary video application.
