International auditions


Every year we hold international preliminary auditions for full-time training.

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.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our Japan Intensive has been postponed to December 2021.
