NEW YORK (AP) — Performing on pointed toe, scores of 6-year-olds auditioned Friday for coveted slots at the city's School of American Ballet.
It's one of seven auditions that will be held this spring for young dancers vying for about 100 openings for the school's fall term.
The school, founded by choreographer George Balanchine, has trained most of the New York City ballet's dancers, as well as hundreds of dancers for major ballet companies around the world.
Here's a collection of images from Friday's tryout.
