SUMMER PROGRAM

How to Audition

AUDITION PROCESS

VIRTUAL AUDITION TOUR

There are three ways to audition: Video Auditions, Individually Scheduled Virtual Auditions or Online Workshops. We recommend attending an Online Workshop for a true glimpse into our Summer Program curriculum. Click here to read virtual audition tips from some of our faculty members.

 

 

Video Audition

Video auditions are accepted on a rolling basis until March 19, 2021. We understand the challenges of creating a video in an unconventional space. Please safely execute what you can. Audition footage should not be longer than 7 minutes in length. The intention is to show technical clarity, placement and understanding. Please include:

  • Barre work | 1 side only
  • Center adagio
  • Pirouette, if possible
  • Solo | 1 – 2 minutes of contemporary or improvisation highlighting your movement quality and artistic choices.

INDIVIDUALLY SCHEDULED VIRTUAL AUDITION

Schedule a virtual audition class with one of our esteemed faculty members. Morning classes will be taken alongside our very own Training Program students. The Tuesday evening audition class is an Open Dance Center ballet class. All classes are adjudicated by our Summer and Training Program Director.

  • Classes available on Tuesday, Thursday or Friday mornings (PT) until March 19, 2021.
  • Tuesday Evening classes (PT) available until March 16, 2021.
