Auditions

  • An audition is required for Milwaukee Ballet's Summer Intensive Program.

  • Audition results determine acceptance/placement into the either the Intermediate Intensive (3-week) or Pre-Profressional (6-week) program.  Students do not choose between the two programs.
  •  
  • Audition results are emailed within ten days of each audition.
  •  
  • To audition for either program, ladies must have started pointe work no later than September 2015.

  • The audition dress code for women is a solid color leotard, pink tights, ballet and pointe shoes.  For men, black tights, white t-shirt and ballet shoes should be worn for the audition.

  • If you are interested in auditioning for the Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II Program while attending the Summer Intensive Program, please bring a resume, headshot, and dance photo (any position/pose) to the audition.  Your summer intensive audition is not an audition for Milwaukee Ballet II.

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.
