I believe that auditions for the studio company occur at the same time as auditions for the ABT summer programs. The ABT webpage says:
"If you would like to audition for American Ballet Theatre's Studio Company, please call the Studio Company Manager at (212) 477-3030, ext. 3206."
The ABT Studio Company appears to be one of the best ways to work towards a contract with ABT. Quoting from the ABT webpage:
"...ABT's Studio Company prepares young dancers to enter American Ballet Theatre,..."
The Studio Company dancers sometimes perform with ABT in the full-length ballets and apprentices seem to be mostly drawn from the studio company. In fact, a large perdentage of the current ABT corps advanced to the company from the Studio Company. If I'm not mistaken, Herman Cornejo is one the most well-known Studio Company alumni now in ABT.
