Audition for Ballet Hispánico's La Academia Program

Auditions are required for Ballet Hispánico's La Academia: Pre-Professional & Professional Program and new Pa'lante Scholars Professional Studies Programs.

Register for upcoming auditions below.


September 6, 2021- May 22, 2022  |  Monday-Friday, 10:30 a.m.- 5 p.m

The Pa’lante Scholars initiative is an innovative, tuition-free professional studies program designed to bridge the gap between the pre-professional and professional stages of a dancer’s career. Ballet Hispánico is answering the need for more career centered programs that build artistry and leadership for our communities, without the financial burden often tied to professional development. We believe that a talented young dancer should never be held back by financial strain. Removing the financial barrier to professional training will in turn ensure young dancers can pursue artistic careers without the burden of debt. The impact of this vision will be reflected as dancers are better able to flourish in their artistic careers, ultimately strengthening recognition and representation of Latinx dancers in the field. Learn more here.
