Auditions

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.
     
  • Click here to download, print and complete an Audition Tour Registration Form and bring it to the audition with the $30 in-person audition fee. 
     
  • 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. 
     
  • Photos and resume are not needed at the audition if you are not interested in Milwaukee Ballet II.
     
  • Scroll to the bottom of this page to find the DVD audition requirements.
