As we continue to navigate the pandemic, Milwaukee Ballet joins several professional ballet schools from across the nation have come together to create a unified collective for a third year. We understand the uncertainty of the coming audition season and summer intensive offerings, and we have created an audition opportunity that will keep our students and faculty safe, while providing them national visibility. The professional school collective is offering in-person auditions at their facilities, and students who attend a National Summer Intensive Audition will be considered by all schools in the collective for acceptance to their summer intensives. Visit the official NSIA website for more details.

Walk-up and same-day audition registrations will not be accepted.
Ladies should wear a dark solid color leotard, pink or skin-tone tights, and matching ballet and pointe shoes.
Gentlemen should wear a white shirt with black tights and ballet shoes.
Students choose a city from the audition schedule and register with the host school. All auditions are in-person, and the remaining schools will observe the audition via Zoom. Students are required to follow the safety protocol of the school at which they audition. The auditions will be recorded so that the observing schools may review the auditions if needed. Students will have the opportunity to indicate which schools they would like to audition for; however, all schools in the collective may reach out to any students who audition. Students must pre-register and pay the registration fee directly to the host school in the city where they audition. The secondary registration form must be completed in order to be considered by observing schools.
