2021 Virtual and Video Auditions
With the health and safety of our families, dancers, and staff in mind, auditions for the 2021 summer will be held virtually and through video submissions. BBASI 2021 summer programs are planned to be in-person.
BBASI 2021 virtual auditions are a great opportunity to meet Program staff and experience BBASI methodology. Dancers should treat the audition as a class and try their individual best. Respecting that dancers come from different training backgrounds and vary in age, each dancer is evaluated within the context of their individual abilities. Successful BBASI candidates demonstrate age-appropriate skills, musicality, commitment to achieving progress, and appreciation for a collaborative environment.
As the Academy is in session during the year, BBASI Artistic Directors and affiliated senior teachers conduct the auditions. During BBASI all ballet classes are taught by the Bolshoi Ballet Academy's Teachers.
To register for an audition:
Advance online registration is highly recommended as capacity will be capped.
New families will be prompted to create a profile on the Program's Portal to register. Returning families should register using their existing profiles through the Parent Dashboard. (REGISTER buttons below)
Once logged in, click on the "enrollment" tab. Please be guided by dancer's age as of June 28, 2021
You will be prompted to choose a date/time/age group and pay the $40 fee.
Upload dancer's headshot and first arabesque photos according to the instructions in the Forms tab. This is important for the evaluation process.
If you have multiple dancers please register them separately (and have them use their own zoom accounts/cameras/area during the audition).
Zoom Audition Information:
Subject to the most relevant official guidance at the time of the auditions:
a) Teacher will conduct the class from a studio
b) Students may participate either from their own homes or from a dance studio. (Please only one student/zoom invitation)
Those registering prior to the deadline will receive their Zoom invitation link 48-72 hours prior to their audition. Those registering after the deadline, if capacity permits such, will receive their Zoom invitation link about 1 hr prior to the audition.
BBASI's expectation that the dancer has thoroughly warmed up and stretched in advance.
If any injuries notify us in advance in writing and to self modify participation.
