Summer Auditions

All summer auditions will be held virtually this year. Registration information will be available in December. Houston Ballet Academy students enrolled for the 2021 Spring semester do not need to audition for the Summer Program. Summer placement will be emailed to current students in January. 

We appreciate you auditioning through Zoom since we are not able to offer our regular in-person auditions, and we understand that studio access to record a video audition may be limited. You will be considered for admission to the Summer Programs during your audition. Please make sure you’re wearing a contrasting color from your background so the adjudicators can easily see you. Make sure your camera angle allows the adjudicators to see you in full-body view in a well-lit area. Use the Zoom chat feature or raise your hand if you need anything during the class.

Audition registration is first-come, first-served. Registration will close when the audition class cap for each class is reached or on Thursday prior to the audition. After registration, you will receive the Zoom link with further instructions on Friday 1-2 days before your audition. All audition classes will be recorded.

All audition and waiting room opening times are CST.
