Metropolitan Ballet Company is holding auditions for its renowned Boys’ Scholarship Dance Program on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 9:00 AM, at Metropolitan Ballet Academy, 700 N. Cedar Road, Jenkintown, PA 19046.

Boys, ages 7-11 and 12-18 are eligible to receive free, weekly dance classes plus performance opportunities from September 2021 through June 2022. Classes are taught by Metropolitan faculty Daniel Mayo (formerly BalletX), Etienne Diaz (Pennsylvania Ballet), and John Selya (Twyla Tharp, Broadway). No prior dance experience is required; boys should arrive ready to participate in a beginner class at 9:00 am in gym clothes or dance attire.

The Boys’ Scholarship Program provides tuition-free training in all-male classes designed to enhance athletic skills, motor intelligence, flexibility, and strength. Approximately 50 boys enroll each year for beginner – advanced classical training, along with classes in contemporary dance. Metropolitan was named by POINTE magazine as one of America’s top seven ballet studios “cultivating top talent” and has been recognized with the Youth America Grand Prix’s Outstanding School Award four times.

The Boys’ Scholarship Program is a community outreach initiative of Metropolitan Ballet Company, supported by grants from the Loeb Performing Arts Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation and by many generous donors. For more information and to register, call 215-663-1665, email, or visit
