This year we will hold two audition rounds. Upon invitation you can participate in a first round in November 2020, or a first round in March 2021. When you will have passed this audition successfully we will invite you to the call back round in April 2021.
Due to the current situation and the measures taken by the Dutch government because of Covid19, we will organize the first round on the 28th of November 2020 online. This because we can't ask our auditioning students to take a two week quarantine before their audition. We will make several groups based on age and time zones.
The first round in March 2021 will hopefully be live and take place between the 1st and 20th of March 2021. The call back round will take place in the last two weeks of April 2021.
*If you choose the online audition please make sure to stream your audition in reasonable circumstances. Preferably a studio, but when that is not possible, a space where you are able to execute all exercises you normally do in a ballet class. With space to lift your legs and the possibility to jump.
High school diploma
The Associate Degree programme is a higher vocational education. This means that a high school diploma is needed to enter this programme. When you have passed your audition with the Dutch National Ballet Academy successfully, but you're still busy with your academic studies, we will ask you to take an academic test, to determine whether or not you will be admitted to the Associate Degree. In the form we will ask you to upload your high school diploma, or latest report/transcript. As well as a confirmation of enrollment of your current study, when you haven't obtained a diploma yet.
