AUGUST 5-16, 2019
HOSTED BY: THE DETROIT OPERA HOUSE
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 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 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.
Ballet Detroit will hold the following auditions for the Summer Intensive program. Pre-registration is preferred. For auditions outside of Michigan, a minimum of 15 pre-registered students is required for the audition to be held. If the audition is cancelled due to low pre-registration, video auditions will be accepted.
