January 1 until February 11, 2018. To register for video auditions, you must create an account through the Parent Portal in iClassPro
and pay the $60.00 fee. Ballet West Academy will not accept DVDs or video tapes, the audition link must be copy and pasted during registration process.

Audition videos should be no longer than 10 minutes in length and must include:

  • tendu (in the center)
  • grand adagio
  • pirouettes (en dehors, en dedans, traveling)
  • petit allégro
  • allégro (i.e. assemble ballonné, ballotté)

  • pointe work for all ladies (i.e. echappé, continuous relevés in arabesque, pirouettes; en dehors and en dedans, bourrees)
  • a short variation of choice (dancers age 15+)
  • Pointe work should include plenty of material to be able to judge technical ability. This is the area where most video submissions come up short.
  • barre work is not requested


Video audition results will be sent within three weeks of your registration.
