2018 Summer Intensive Auditions Begin

With temperatures stuck below freezing in KC, what better time to begin auditions for Kansas City Ballet School’s 2018 Summer Intensive program. Nothing shakes off the chill like gearing up for summer!


Admission to Kansas City Ballet School Summer Intensive is by audition only. The five-week program is for students 11-22 years of age (females who have had a minimum of one school year of pointe work). Auditions kick off this Friday, Jan. 5 in Chicago and continue to 23 other cities throughout January and into February. Here is the complete list. KCBS will host two auditions: the first is on Saturday, Jan. 13 and the the second on Saturday, Feb. 24—the final audition.

Students unable to attend one of these may submit a video audition by Feb. 14 or try to schedule an appointment audition at KCBS.


Pre-registration fees are $30 in advance—these close the Wednesday prior to the audition. On-site registration fees are $40. In addition to fees, students will need to:

  1. Complete online Audition Form
  2. Attach photos to online Audition Form or bring to audition (4×6, with student’s name on the back)
    • Headshot (females with hair up)
    • First arabesque (females on pointe).
