Auditions are held at the end of the spring semester each year for the NFB Academie and are by reservation only.

No prior dance training and no particular academic achievement is required for students seeking admittance to the third grade. However, students currently in fifth grade seeking to audition for the Academie Middle School sixth grade program should have at least three years of ballet training and there is no particular academic benchmark required. Auditions for other grade levels are based on space available, and you may request to be placed on our waiting list for that opportunity.

Auditions are open to all children in the community and selection is made solely on the child’s ballet potential.
