Entry criteria

Entry into The Australian Ballet School is by audition only. Entry to the Advanced Diploma of Dance (Elite Performance) (CUA60113) is generally through completion of the Diploma of Dance (Elite Performance) (CUA50113), plus demonstration of the facility for dance (including coordination, musicality, artistry and appropriate temperament) that is required for professional performance in the field of classical ballet. However, the successful awarding of the Diploma of Dance (Elite Performance) (CUA50113) does not guarantee rite of passage into the Advanced Diploma of Dance (Elite Performance) (CUA60113) and generally successful applicants will have demonstrated these characteristics and a level of dance ability that is considered appropriate by the Director for entry into Level 7 of The Australian Ballet School’s eight-level training program.

Due to the nature of the dance industry and the employment opportunities available, as well as the intense physical nature of dance training, vocational training must be undertaken during a certain age range. Consequently an applicant’s age will be taken into consideration. Generally, successful applicants will be between 17 and 19 years of age.
