To ensure students are relaxed and able to work effectively, all audition classes are closed to observation.

At the audition, all students must provide a recent photograph of themselves in a leotard, tights and ballet slippers. The photograph should show a tendu in 2nd position, en face (facing front). Arms should also be in 2nd position.

There will be a question and answer period at each audition location, giving parents, teachers and students the opportunity to ask questions about the RWB School.

Auditions by Mail
Students who are unable to make it to one of our tour locations may audition by submitting a standard DVD. Please note that other formats are not compatible and may result in the audition application not being processed. The 5 – 10 minute video should demonstrate barre and centre work. Senior students (those 16 years and older) may include pointe work and/or a variation. As well, students auditioning by mail must include:

a recent photo of themselves facing front showing a tendu in 2nd position; arms in 2nd position

a letter of recommendation from their dance teacher

a completed Audition Application and payment of the Audition By Mail fee
