Dancers attending open auditions must bring a resume, headshot, two-to-three dance photos and a cover letter outlining all prior training and performance experience, height, weight, awards received and visa status, among others.

A registration form must also be completed at the time of the audition, or may be filled out in advance online, according to a press release.

Dancers unable to attend a scheduled date are welcome to audition via video online. Those auditioning online must submit a resume, headshot, dance photos and a video of a classical variation or close-up performance footage.
