About AP Auditions:
Associates Program auditions at Canada's National Ballet School take the form of a ballet class, approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour in length. For students auditioning for entry into lower levels of the program, previous ballet experience is not necessary. For students auditioning for the Senior Associates Program, some ballet experience is expected.

Students are evaluated based on their ability to listen to instruction, their musicality and ability to express themselves, be creative and enjoy the experience.
