As we navigate the current national pandemic, professional ballet schools from across the nation have come together to create a unified collective. We understand the uncertainty of the coming audition season and summer intensive offerings, and we have created an audition opportunity that will keep our students and faculty safe, while providing national visibility. The National Summer Intensive Audition professional school collective is offering in-person auditions at our 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 register with the host school. The audition is in-person, and schools will observe the audition via Zoom. Students are required to follow the safety protocol of the school at which they audition. 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 with OKC Ballet. The secondary registration form must be completed in order to be considered by observing schools.
