Vocational Classical Ballet Study Programme Audition Process

This information outlines the steps and options available to potential students as they progress through the audition process for the Academy.

Application Review

After receiving completed application forms from potential students, there will be a review process.

Audition Invitation

Once the application review is complete, selected candidates will be invited to audition.

Audition Options

The Academy is offering two options for auditions:

 

In-Person Audition: Candidates can choose to audition in person. This typically involves physically attending a class at the Academy for the audition process.

 

Video Audition: Alternatively, candidates can opt for a video audition. This allows them to submit a video recording of their audition rather than attending in person.

 

Candidates interested in the video audition option are directed to refer to a separate document called the “Video Requirements PDF.” This document contains detailed instructions on how to prepare and submit a video audition, including technical specifications and content guidelines. 

Application Outcomes

Successful Audition Outcome Notification

Successful candidates will receive formal notification of their audition results. This notification will be sent via email. The notification will typically be sent within a short time frame after the audition.

 

Admission Pack: Successful candidates who have been accepted will receive an admission pack. This pack will contain important information about the course they have applied to. The admission pack includes details on course specifics, curriculum, faculty, and other relevant course-related information. Additionally, the admission pack provides information on tuition payment details, outlining how and when tuition fees should be paid.

 

 

Admission Documents and Completion: Once a successful candidate receives their admission pack and decides to accept the offer, they will be required to submit certain documents and complete specific steps. These documents include transcripts, identification documents, health records, and any other paperwork necessary for enrolment. In addition to document submission, candidates are often required to pay their tuition fees/deposit according to the provided payment details. Once all required documents are submitted, and fees are paid, the student’s admission is officially marked as complete, and they are ready to start their course.

Un-Successful Applicants

Candidates who are not immediately accepted may receive one of two types of letters: 

 

Waitlist Letter: If a candidate is placed on a waitlist, they will receive a letter indicating their status. This means they are not accepted at that moment but may be considered for admission at a later time if places become available. 

 

Rejection Letter: Candidates who are not accepted will receive a rejection letter. This letter will inform them that their application has not been successful for the course they have applied to. Waitlisted candidates or those who were not accepted may also be offered guidance on alternative courses or programmes they can consider if applicable.
