International Audition Tour

Each year, the RWB School sends a team of artistic faculty and administrative staff to cities across Canada and the United States to audition students for our Ballet Academic, Aspirant and Teacher Training Programs and, in some cities, to conduct master classes. Every student with a dream to dance or teach professionally is encouraged to attend.  

 

Students who participate in the 2014/15 International Audition Tour are auditioning to gain acceptance into Professional Division Summer Session (July 2015), which serves as the second stage of the two-part audition process.
