Talent is the sole criterion for acceptance into NBS's full-time program. Through auditions conducted annually in 20 or more cities across Canada, over 1,000 students apply for admission to the School's full-time program every year. Roughly 150 of these applicants will be invited to join current NBS students for the intensive Summer School program in July, and of these, approximately 50 will be offered a place in the full-time Professional Ballet and Post-Secondary Programs.
Fees for the Professional Ballet Program are subsidized through government and private sector funding. In addition, an extensive bursary program is in place in the Ballet Academic Program (Grade 6 to 12 and the Post Secondary Program) to ensure that no talented student is prevented from attending NBS because of financial circumstances. As a national training institution NBS offers bursaries to Canadian students and approximately half of all resident students receive bursary assistance.
