IABD | Auditions


IABD AuditionsLed by Artistic Lead Rasta Thomas, IABD offers a unique and well-rounded opportunity for students, pre-professionals and professionals to audition for many of the top U.S. dance companies, professional development and summer intensive programs. The audition curriculum includes ballet and contemporary dance techniques and forms. Conducted by our world-class faculty, we are excited to bring our auditions to Philadelphia, PA during the 32nd Annual International Conference and Festival of Blacks in Dance - Friday, January 17 - Sunday, January 19, 2020!

Auditionees must be at least 10 years of age and up. Faculty/Adjudicators will observe those who audition in either a class and/or professional audition setting to provide them with the best audition experience!

The IABD Auditions offer students and professionals a one of-a-kind opportunity and strong connection to the professional dance world. Many have gained acceptance at some of the country's most prestigious dance colleges, summer programs and professional companies.




Scholarships are made available by participating organizations for those whose talent and commitment is at the highest level. These opportunities are available to students and professionals, across all genres, and at the discretion of the Faculty/Adjudicator.
