2015 BBASI Auditions

2015 BBASI Auditions


We welcome all serious classical ballet students and dancers to take part in the BBASI audition process.  Please know that your participation in a live audition does not obligate you for enrollment in the actual BBASI Program.  The auditions are a great opportunity for dancers and families to meet BBASI staff *, learn about the different programs and ask questions face to face.  The auditions are similar to the BBASI Program in that they tend to be challenging, but are non-competitive in their environment. All dancers should treat the audition as a class and try their individual best.  BBASI audition staff understands that dancers come from different training backgrounds, are on different levels and are of a varying age.  Each dancer is evaluated strictly within the context of his/her individual abilities, with the goal to ensure that they can be successful in the program.  Dancers who are successful in the BBASI Program demonstrate: age appropriate skill and coordination level, musicality, strong desire to achieve progress in their training through hard work and dedication, and thrive in a collaborative and non-competitive environment. * While during BBASI all Program classes are taught by Bolshoi Ballet Academy's Teachers, please note that as the Academy is in session during the Auditions Period, local teachers are used for the Auditions. IMPORTANT NOTE:  There are two steps to registering for an audition. You must first create a profile on CampSite.  After you have created a profile, click on the "enrollment" tab on your BBASI Dashboard to enroll your dancer in an audition.  You have not successfully enrolled until you have been prompted to choose a date/location/time and pay the $35 fee.
WHEN TO ARRIVE:  Please be reminded that dancers should arrive no later than 30 min prior to the start of their audition to check in with BBASI staff and to have time to warm up.
WHAT TO BRING:   headshot and first arabesque photo (these do not have to be professionally done, but should be around size 5"x7" and labeled on the back with name and age as of June 21, 2015) and pointe shoes (if applicable).
DRESS CODE:  For females: dark leotard and pink tights / For males: black tights and shoes, white shirt.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR RETURNING STUDENTS: If you attended a BBASI program in summer 2014 and are registering for an audition, click here to login to your BBASI Dashboard (you do not need to create a new profile).
