Summer Intensives Audition FAQs

How do I register for an audition?
We accept pre-registrations online as well as in person. Online pre-registration is preferred but not required. Links to pre-register online are located with the corresponding city audition information. All dancers auditioning must complete a paper registration form. All pre-registered dancers should bring a copy of their order confirmation as proof of payment.

How much does it cost to audition?
The audition fee is $40 for both in-person and absentee auditions. Pre-registration applicants will be required to pay with a credit card. Absentee applicants may pay via credit card or check. In-person applicants must pay via check or cash.

Do I need to bring photos?
Photos are not required for in-person Summer Intensive auditions. For dancers auditioning for Atlanta Ballet 2, we require a current resumé and a full-body dance photo. For absentee auditions, we require a photo of the dancer in tendu à la seconde and a photo of the dancer in first arabesque.

What should I wear for the audition?
Dancers should wear professional dance attire - i.e. leotard, tights, ballet slippers, and pointe shoes (if applicable) for women and fitted shirt, tights, and ballet shoes for men.

What if I cannot attend one of the in-person auditions?
We do accept absentee auditions. Absentee auditions must be submitted by March 1, 2019. Any absentee auditions submitted after the deadline are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis pending availability in the programs.

I am interested in auditioning for Atlanta Ballet 2. What if there is not an Atlanta Ballet 2 audition at the location closest to me?
