Students are accepted into The Washington School of Ballet’s Summer Intensive by audition only. Audition classes will take place in various cities. These auditions are meant for students ages 13-22 (All students must be no younger than 13 by June 23, 2014). We will consider students who are 12 years old that have had a year of pointe. However, we are not able to provide housing to students this age. Auditions for the Lower Division (ages 6 to 9) will be conducted by appointment. Please email Anne Erps at agerps@washingtonballet.org to schedule an appointment. In addition, students ages 10 to 12 can do an in class audition by appointment. Please email Donna Glover at dglover@washingtonballet.org to schedule an appointment.

Students may audition by either attending an audition class or submitting a video audition. DVD and video link auditions should be no longer than 10 minutes and must include an introduction with the student's name, age, years of study and places of study. Students must submit an audition form, a check for the $40 made out to The Washington Ballet, photograph and one letter of recommendation from your teacher. The DVD or video must have center work including adagio, pirouettes en dehors and en dedans, petit allegro, grand allegro and pointe work for the girls. Male students should include tour en l'air, single or double depending on age and level and allegro that includes beats and grande pirouettes.
