BalletMet Zoom Audition Registration

National Summer Intensive Audition Tour

As we navigate the ongoing worldwide pandemic, professional ballet schools from across the nation have come together to create a unified collective. In light of varying levels of comfort as the health crisis continues, we have created an audition opportunity that will keep our students and faculty safe, while providing national visibility. The NSIA professional school collective is offering in-person auditions at their facilities, and students who attend the National Summer Intensive Audition will be considered by all schools in the collective for acceptance to their summer intensives.

How It Works
Students choose a city from the audition schedule and register with the host school. The audition is in-person, and the remaining schools will observe the audition via Zoom or in person. Students are required to follow the safety protocol of the school at which they audition. This may include proof of vaccination. The auditions will be recorded so that the observing schools may review the auditions if needed. Students will have the opportunity to select which schools they would like to audition for, however; all schools in the collective may reach out to any students who audition. Students must pre-register and pay the registration fee directly to the host school in the city where they audition. The secondary registration form must be completed in order to be considered by observing schools. Please note many schools are still operating under capacity restrictions. Most schools have a maximum capacity of 25-30 students per audition, but this may vary slightly from school to school. Early registration is the best way to guarantee a spot for your audition of choice.

Audition Fee: $110
