Here is some important information you need to take part in our Auditions this Spring

What should you bring with you?

• It is advisable to have bare feet or socks (no ballet/jazz shoes/trainers)
• Bring bottled-water and/or preferred cold drinks (not fizzy drinks), and any necessary fruit/snacks to sustain you through the audition.

What can you expect at an NYDW Audition?

You will participate in a contemporary technique class, learn a phrase of repertory and achieve a creative task. We will keep all applicants in the studio for the duration of the audition. You do not need to prepare anything in advance. It is important that you come to the audition feeling physically fit, injury free and highly motivated.

Who will be leading the Audition?
