Company and BBII Auditions

Auditions are by invitation only.

Boston Ballet supports the International Audition Pre-Selection Guidelines. If you are interested in auditioning for next season, please submit the following material via email.

  • A video with no introduction or fancy editing, consisting of the following performed in leotard and tights for women and tight fitting dance attire for men:

  • A short classical variation drawn from the standard repertoire, danced in pointe shoes by female applicants

  • A short contemporary variation (that could consist of something drawn from repertoire, phrases from classwork or an applicant-created work) that illustrates the applicant’s command of a range of movement different from that demonstrated in the classical variation

  • 3-5 minutes of barre work, incorporating both sides, danced in soft shoes by male applicants and pointe shoes by female applicants

  • 3-5 minutes of centre work that includes adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegro, danced in pointe shoes by female applicants

  • CV

  • Head shot

  • 2-3 dance photos that reveal the dancer’s body proportions and line
