Dancer Auditions for Oregon Ballet Theatre’s 2020/21 Season

March 8, 2020 in New York

Auditions are by invitation only.

Auditions applications for the 20/21 season are now longer being accepted. If you have sent in your audition materials and have not heard back, we thank you for your patience, you will get a response by Feb. 21.

Oregon Ballet Theatre supports the International Audition Pre-Selection Guidelines. If you are interested in auditioning for next season, please submit the following material to Auditions@OBT.org

  • A video with no introduction or fancy editing, consisting of the following performed in leotard and tights for women and tight fitting dance attire for men. Video should include:
    • 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
  • Performance video is acceptable, as long as the auditioner is clearly notated
  • Accepted formats for video: YouTube and Vimeo links
  • Provide passwords for links as necessary
  • CV
  • Head shot
  • 2-3 dance photos that reveal the dancer’s body proportions and line
  • Accepted formats: jpg, .pdf files

Email applications missing any of these materials will not be considered.

Dancers who are offered a contract must provide proof of US Citizenship or valid documentation to legally work within the United States for the length of the contract.
No phone calls, please.
