EYB Giselle audition

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a 7 year old son who would like to audition for EYB in Aylesbury. My much older daughter has done EYB several times in the past but the last junior audition she attended was was too long ago to remember! My son is  in G1 and will just have turned 8. My question is will he know enough ballet content to keep up at the audition? I know the age range is 8-11 but there will be a huge difference in ability at that age. Thank you.

The audition isn’t easy (I know there were pirouettes and grand plies in the junior audition) but they take a few younger ones so I think they must judge according to age and grade (they certainly ask for this on the application form). Tbh they are very keen to take boys as there are so few apply so he would probably stand a good chance!

Hi, EYB is all about "performance" so as long as your son smiles and tries his best, he stands a very good chance of getting in x EYB was my son's first "big" audition experience and he was only grade 1 at the time too. Good luck x
