AUDITION INFORMATION

All students, ages 10-22, interested in the Summer Intensive program must audition so that Ballet Detroit’s faculty can assess them prior to enrollment. Students can audition during the open audition, schedule an in-class audition, or if neither of those options are possible, submit a video audition. Current Ballet Detroit students do not need to audition and can just register for the intensive. Regardless of the method of auditioning, results will be emailed within two weeks following the audition. Please email admissions@balletdetroit.org with any questions regarding the audition process.
