AUDITION

To be considered for our 2020 In-Person Summer Intensive, we ask that you submit a video audition following the guidelines below. If you are unable to access ballet studios during this time, old performance and/or audition videos can be submitted. If absolutely no video audition material is available due to the circumstances of this time, we will allow exceptions to be made by submitting photos in the following poses:

For girls:

  • First position en pointe
  • First arabesque en pointe
  • Développé a la seconde

For boys:

  • Battement tendu a la seconde
  • First arabesque

Please note that all students auditioning must first complete an Audition Form and submit it with your audition material. Please note that a very limited number of people will be accepted to our in-person intensive.

The deadline to submit all audition material is July 7, 2020.
