Audition Details
Registration opens 60 minutes prior to the audition class for each age group. The audition will consist of an hour and a half ballet class, for which a non-refundable fee of $30 will be charged. Please bring pointe shoes, headshot and a photo of yourself in first arabesque position.

Online Pre-Registration
Dancers can submit their information to NCDT online prior to your audition and receive a $5 discount on their audition fee! Online pre-registration must be completed before the Wednesday prior to the date of the audition you plan to attend. If the audition city does not appear on the menu, then pre-registration has closed for that audition. At your audition you will need to check in at registration to submit your headshot and photo in first arabesque. The $25 non-refundable audition fee will be charged the day that you complete the online pre-registration. Contact Katie Jenkins at kjenkins@ncdance.org with any questions.

NCDT encourages you to print our audition forms in advance and bring them, filled out, to the audition. This saves time for both you and Dance Theatre staff and ensures a smooth and speedy registration process.
