PNB School Auditions

2022/23 School Year

Entry into the School for students age 8 and above is by audition only. Students ages 12-18 should be at a stage of technical advancement proportionate to their age and have the physical qualifications suited to the demands of classical dance. Twelve year olds should be dancing at least 4 days per week and must already be training on pointe.

There are no open auditions scheduled at this time for the 2022-23 school year. The School is currently scheduling individual auditions as enrollment allows. Please contact the School to discuss audition requirements and schedule and audition: 206.441.2435; pnbschool@pnb.org.

Apply for the 2022/23 Professional Division

Students interested in the year round program must attend the 2022 Summer Course; or must have attended a prior PNB Summer Course or been accepted to a PNB Summer Course through an audition. All students MUST complete and submit 2022-23 Professional Division Application by July 1, 2022. Students who are not attending the 2022 Summer Course must also submit 3 recent videos, including 10 minutes of classwork, 1 classical variation, and 1 contemporary variation. All video links should be submitted to pnbschool@pnb.org. No DVD’s accepted. There is no fee to apply for the Professional Division.

Those invited to the year round program will be notified by the end of the Summer Course. We generally advise students 16 or younger not to move to Seattle unless a family member is relocating with them. No housing is available during the school year, and students must make their own arrangements for housing and completion of high school courses. Please email Denise Bolstad if you are interested: denise@pnb.org

  • Communicate openly Schools pledge to communicate and find solutions if students have concerns about overlapping deadlines or program dates.
  • Respect policies Once you have made your decision, please identify and follow each school’s response policies.
  • Honor deadlines Respect scholarship offers by responding on or before deadlines to improve a school’s ability to manage enrollment, housing, and wait-lists.
