AUGUST 3-14, 2020
LOCATION: 307 N. Main St., Ann Arbor, MI 48104
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the audition process.
Students must submit two 4×6 photos (digital is acceptable) when auditioning by any method. They must be:
- First arabesque (on pointe if applicable)
Please send all digital materials for auditions to email@example.com prior to auditioning. Physical photos may be presented at registration before auditioning. Please do not mail any photos.
