You can only follow our dance programme after a successful audition. During your audition, we will not only assess your technique, coordination and musical aptitude, but also examine your physical suitability and your potential career in (neo)classical and contemporary or modern dance.

Procedure A: You wish to enter through live audition

You can register for one of the pre-auditions we organise every spring. You are welcome to showcase your talent to a jury of dance experts at the Royal Ballet School in Antwerp. After your audition, you will be notified as soon as possible whether you may proceed to the final audition, which usually takes place in May. 

After the final audition, we will let you know if you are welcome to enrol in the following school year at the Royal Ballet School. We will also explain why you passed or failed your audition.

It is important to know that you do not require any ballet technique or ballet experience to take part in the auditions for the first grade. You will be judged on your physical abilities, talent and potential alone. 



Procedure B: Je wil instromen via video selectie

(Inter)national students who like to apply for the audition are required to send audition photos/video. The requirements for the audition video and photos can be found in the attachments at the bottom of the page. 

When the video file is sent (best via online watching, youtube or vimeo), please deposit the amount of 25 euros to the account below. (The video will only be judged when the entry fee has been transferred).
The deadline for video audition is 15 May. Submissions will be assessed starting Mid February.
