Students can audition during the open auditions, attend a Sunday master class to audition, schedule an in-class audition, or if none of those options are possible, submit a video audition. 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.
