Auditions

We are holding auditions in New York for new male and female dancers for our 2013/14 season.

Interested applicants should come from a recognised vocational dance school and have a strong classical ballet technique, pointe work and partnering skills. Professional experience is great but not a necessity. We are looking for dancers who are self-motivated, can work as part of our creative team and who will enjoy a challenge!

Contracts run from approximately September 2013 – July 2014 for our touring programme of neo-classical work by Robert Binet, Javier de Frutos, Martin Lawrance, Christopher Marney, Ludovic Ondiviela, Arthur Pita and Sharon Watson.

Date:
25th July at 5pm (call back on the 26th of July at 5pm)

Location:
Manhattan Movement & Arts Center
Manhattan Youth Ballet
248 West 60th Street
New York, NY 10023

Audition will consist of:
- a 90-minute ballet class (women will need to wear pointe shoes after barre)
- performance of a classical solo, no longer than 2 minutes long. This can be existing repertoire or your own choreography
- learning short pieces of Ballet Black company repertoire
- interview with Artistic Director and Ballet Master

There is no charge for our audition, but you MUST:

- Bring a one page resume with you age, height, nationality, plus training and performance history and references
- Provide ONE current headshot
- Have music for your solo on CD or iPod
