Auditions

2019-2020 School Year


Auditions listed below are for acceptance to the following programs:

  • Professional Division Scholarship Program, ages 17 to 21*
  • Junior Division Pre-Professional Program, ages 7 to 17

*Professional Division times listed below are estimated. Students will be emailed two days prior with their specific audition time.

Note to International Students: If you have not previously been accepted to a Professional Division Program, please review the procedures for applying for a student visa on the International Students page. It is highly recommended that you start this process prior to auditioning so that you have enough time to apply for your student visa after the July audition. Questions, please email admissions@alvinailey.org.


Auditions consist of abbreviated classes in ballet, Horton or Graham-based modern technique. There is no barre and students should warm-up prior to arrival. Solos are not required. Students do not need to bring head shots or resumes.

Online registration closes 24 hours (Eastern Standard Time) prior to audition start time.  However, space is limited and auditions may fill to capacity sooner than 24 hours prior. We recommend signing up as early as possible.

WALK-INS WILL NOT BE ACCOMMODATED!


Please note: The $20 audition fee is non-refundable. If you are unable to attend the audition you have registered for, you may transfer the fee to another date and audition location, or you may apply by video audition.
