Audition Requirements:

Must be 18 or older for Company Audition

All in-person company auditions are by invitation only and will be for consideration of a company position. Dancers who are unable to attend any of the above listed dates will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Due to COVID-19, for the health and safety of our company, we are not currently inviting dancers to take company class auditions.

Artistic Staff will not consider OKCB II and Trainee positions at the company auditions. Dancers wishing to audition for Oklahoma City Ballet's Trainee Program or OKCB II will be required to attend Oklahoma City Ballet's Summer Intensive to be considered for those programs. Please submit separate SI audition material to summerintensive@okcballet.com. An audition fee is required for all non-company SI auditions.

Due to a limited amount of space available in studios, video submissions are required to attend all of our company auditions.

  • Barre work
