For the first time in Mexico

Auditions

August 21, 2018 National Center for the Arts (CENART), Mexico City

This year the renowned Mexican dancer Isaac Hernández brings to Mexico the cultural project DESPERTARES IMPULSA® - Creative Industries in Mexico®, through which the English National Ballet School (ENBS) offers for the first time the opportunity to audition in Mexico to enter its 3-year Academic Program and the 2019 Summer Course for young people who meet the high quality standards that distinguish the ENBS.

.

The invitation is for young people of any nationality and, on this occasion, the ENBS will not charge the audition fee.

.

In addition to the possibility of being selected to study at its prestigious campus, the ENBS will offer the opportunity to participate in scholarships to pay for the courses.

The amount of the scholarship and who receives it depends on the skills that ENBS managers find in those selected for the Face-to-Face Audition.

.

It will be the first time that ENBS offers talented dancers the opportunity to audition in Mexico to enter one of the most prestigious training schools in the world of ballet; no need to travel to London.

.

One of Isaac Hernández's dreams is to bring the most talented dancers in their formative stage closer to the possibility of being able to complement their professional training in an institution such as the English National Ballet School.
