Interest Form

In-person auditions listed in the audition tour are for both SBSC and Sacramento Ballet Summer Intensive. If you audition at one of these in-person auditions, your offer letter will indicate if you are accepted for the SI, SBSC or both.

You may also submit your materials and be reviewed on that only.

Sacramento Ballet’s auditions are structured similarly to a ballet technique class. Dancers will complete barre and center combinations, including pointe work. Audition results for live auditions are emailed within two weeks of the audition. Audition results for video auditions are emailed within four weeks of the submission.

Please find the audition you are interested in attending in the Audition Tour tab and click on the appropriate link.

If you register online, bring a copy of your audition registration confirmation and payment notification as proof of registration. If you uploaded an incorrect photo or document, you may bring the correct items with you to the audition.

If you register in person, you should bring a headshot. Payments must be made through the registration site. Credit cards and cash are not accepted in person.

An in-person audition is always preferred over a video audition. However, dancers not able to attend a scheduled live audition are allowed to submit a video audition through our online google form.

Submit a Video Audition

Audition results for video auditions are conveyed within four to six weeks of the submission.
