Our Live Audition consists of an abbreviated ballet class, repertoire, and improvisation.

  • Check-in begins 1 hour before audition starts.
  • Online registration is highly encouraged. Your audition results will be processed faster using this method.
  • In-person registration is subject to space and availability.

There is no dress code at the LINES Ballet Summer Program. Wear form-fitting dancewear and style hair neatly away from your face. Most students wear a leotard and tights or shorts, but there is no restriction on color or style. Pointe work is not required at the audition.
