Audition guideline for all auditions

Please wear soft ballet shoes for the audition. In addition, email the following three 5” by 7” photos (please wear soft ballet shoes) with your name written on the back of each photo:

  1. Head shot (hair in a bun for girls)
  2. First arabesque
  3. Tendu in à la seconde (ages 10-11 only) or développé in à la seconde (ages 12-19 only)

KAB has 2 means by which a student may audition:

  1. AUDITION TOUR: Dates and locations will be posted on the website and our social pages. Locations will also be featured in Dance and Pointe Magazine.
  2. VIDEO: Submit a video upload (via YouTube, Vimeo, MediaFire, or other video link) and enter the hyperlink in the online audition registration form. Video should be no longer than 10 minutes, with the student’s head and feet showing at all times. The camera must be centered and perpendicular to the barre. Please include photo positions described above in the video.

Please do not send performance footage or wear costume attire; only audition attire should be worn.  If auditioning for the Summer Intensive, you are encouraged to submit by the end of January as space begins to fill during the tour.

If you are auditioning by video, your response will be emailed to you within two weeks of submission. Please ensure that the video is not private, as problems viewing the video will delay the process.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but specific information about a dancer’s evaluation will not be released. Kirov Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, gender, or national/ethnic origin. The school is authorized under Federal Law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.
