Video Auditions

We encourage interested applicants to audition in person by attending one of the open auditions. However, if your schedule does not permit you to attend one of the scheduled auditions, you may send a DVD or online video of your dancing. DVDs and Vimeo/YouTube links should include a minimum of one classical variation (ladies on pointe) and one contemporary variation, in addition to basic classroom center work.

  • DVDs should be mailed with a resume, headshot and full body dance shot to Ronnie Underwood, Ballet Master, 6800 North Classen, Oklahoma City, OK 73116.
  • Vimeo/Youtube links with a resume, headshot and full body dance shot can be e-mailed to Mr. Underwood at runderwood@okcballet.com.

After reviewing video auditions, the Oklahoma City Ballet will invite selected candidates to audition during company class. Auditions during company class will be by invitation only.
