Your application will not be processed unless all the required documents, photos and video links are submitted.

    • a short classical variation drawn from the standard repertoire, danced in pointe shoes by female applicants
    • a short contemporary variation (that could consist of something drawn from repertoire, phrases from classwork, or an applicant-created work) that illustrates the applicant’s command of a range of movement different from that demonstrated in the classical variation
  • a CV (.pdf / .doc / .docx) that includes your email address, postal address, height, date of birth, citizenship, training and performance experience.
