Video Audition Guidelines – Project | CONNECT

We have adopted the International Audition Pre-Selection Guidelines as a discretionary requirement for our video audition applications.

Artistic directors from 21 professional schools formed a committee to create the International Audition Pre-Selection Guidelines (IAP Guidelines).  The Guidelines have been endorsed by artistic directors worldwide, find out more here.

The Guidelines:

An applicant is required to submit the following material only:

    • 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:
        • a short classical variation drawn from the standard repertoire, danced in pointe shoes by female applicants (OPTIONAL)
        • 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
        • 3 – 5 minutes of barre work, incorporating both sides, danced in soft shoes by male applicants and pointe shoes by female applicants (optional).
      • 3 – 5 minutes of centre work that includes adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegro, danced  in pointe shoes by female applicants (optional).
