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 2016.
     
  • Click here to download, print and complete an Audition Tour Registration Form and bring it to the audition with the $40 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.

*Some auditions are divided by age due to the large number of attendees historically at these audition sites.  Students who are 14 years old now and will be 15 years old by the start of the program may audition in either class listed at the site.

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, 2017.  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).
