Weather Advisory: We are aware of the potential winter storm in Chicago and New York. At this time, we are still planning to hold our auditions in those locations. If anything changes, we will post an update here.

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.
