Auditions_1

Festival Ballet Theatre conducts auditions for male and female professional level dancers on an as-needed basis.  Dancers can audition for specific ballets, in person or by video.

Video Submissions:  Professional Dancers interested in be considered should submit resume, photo and video to info@festivalballet.org. We will refer to these submissions as positions/need arises.

In-studio Auditions:  We will post notifications of auditions on our website and announce via social media (follow us on facebook and twitter) when we hold live auditions.  Audition dates will be posted on this website, approximately one month before the audition session. Dancers should come prepared to take class, women will dance on pointe.  After warm-up, dancers will be shown combinations in groups and as partners, and they will be assess in respect to technical and artistic skills.
Dancers who live in southern California, or those who may be traveling to the area, are welcome to join us for class at any time so we can become familiar with your dance style and abilities.
