The National Youth Ballet Audition

The National Youth Ballet (Director General and Intendant: John Neumeier, Chief Artistic and Pedagogical Director: Kevin Haigen) is looking for new dancers for the season 2023/24 starting in August 2023, who would like to develop their artistic personality and stylistic versatility through professional training, but also through the creation of their own choreographies. The dancers should be between 18 and 21 years old and have completed professional training.

The National Youth Ballet (Hamburg, Germany) has been around since the 2011/12 season. It is the first of its kind in Germany and is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. The young company has two main goals: On the one hand, it promotes young dance talents who have completed their professional training, and on the other, it wants to find new forms of performance to bring the art form of dance closer to the people. The ballet is therefore not always performed on a large stage, but also in schools, retirement homes, hospitals and prisons, as well as in theaters, concert halls and festivals. The company performs throughout Germany and internationally.

The eight young dancers have their home at the Ballet Center Hamburg – John Neumeier. The engagement at the Bundesjugendballet is an important link for the dancers to prepare themselves comprehensively for the professional life after their training. Further information can be found on our homepage

The audition will take place on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at Ballettzentrum Hamburg – John Neumeier, Caspar-Voght-Str. 54, 20535 Hamburg.

We are looking forward to welcoming interested dancers for the audition. There will be no preselection, but we would like to receive your application until March 30, 2023.
