This page will be updated soon for the 2019 Festival, but will be similar in content to the 2018 Festival classes and audition opportunities.


More than 50 intermediate to advanced level master classes and workshops in several genres take place in three locations around the city: Alabama Ballet, Alabama School of Fine Arts, and The Dance Foundation. Classical and contemporary ballet, jazz and modern as well as current forms such as street jazz, West African, and musical theatre dance let you fine-tune your favorite technique and give you the chance to try something new.


Intermediate to advanced dancers from age 11 through college can audition for summer programs at national, regional and local dance organizations, including American Ballet Theatre*, Dance Theatre of Harlem, American Dance Festival, and Joffrey Jazz and Contemporary Programs. Dancers may register for auditions as single sessions or as part of your registration package. Space is limited, so register now!
