2018 London Children's Ballet auditions

Not all audition opportunities are created equal, but the London Children's Ballet is definitely one of the worthwhile ones. We've had JMDS students perform with LCB in the past. They have loved the experience and learned loads. Give it a go! 

(As with all auditions, please let Miss Jayne know if you register your child, and don't forget to put 'The Jayne Marie Dancing School' - not 'JMDS' - on the application form. If you have already committed to take part in group items for The British Arts Awards then please check for rehearsal clashes before applying.)

In 2018, LCB is excited to be returning to The Peacock theatre with a revival of its original two-act ballet of Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost.

The Company is looking for 60 young dancers of all shapes and sizes (girls aged 9 –14, boys 9 –16) for this beautiful, light-hearted, two-act ballet. There are many wonderful roles for dancers of all ages, and children receive over 100 hours of free expert ballet tuition and performance experience as part of a professional production with a live orchestra. A further 48 children are chosen to dance in LCB’s local touring companies.

It is FREE for all who take part – so truly everyone is welcome.
