Bring resume and current dance photo to the audition.

$25 required audition fee for non-AGMA members.

To audition for Kansas City Ballet, it is definitely BEST to attend an open audition in one of the designated cities (Kansas City Ballet has hired 85 percent of its dancers from open auditions).

 

DVD Auditions
If you are UNABLE to attend an open audition, you may send a current DVD to be considered for an audition in Company class with the Kansas City Ballet. THESE SPACES ARE VERY LIMITED. Videos submitted from MySpace, Facebook, YouTube and any other online format will NOT be accepted.

Non-AGMA members are required to send a $35 audition fee with their DVD. Please send a check made payable to Kansas City Ballet when you mail your video.
