DVD auditions are accepted for students unable to attend an in-person audition. The DVD should be 5-8 minutes in length and demonstrate barre, center, turns, jumps and pointe or men's work. Include an Audition Tour Registration Form and a $40 DVD audition fee (check, money order or cash only) with the DVD. Also include student's name, address and age on the actual DVD. Send package to Milwaukee Ballet, Attention: School Director, 504 W. National Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53204 by April 15, 2015.  Please note that if you prefer to send a link to your audition video rather than mailing a DVD, we still require the audition registration form and $40 payment (check, money order or cash only).
