Let your movement tell a story.

Whether you are a student auditioning for a summer program or a dancer on the brink of a professional career, you'll learn the ins and outs of the audition process and will focus on techniques and tips for a successful audition. Patrick Armand, Karen Gabay, and Ricardo Bustamante will lead the class, and their expertise judging school and company auditions will provide a wealth of information to novice and experienced dancers alike. Participants will be expected to bring a resume and headshot to this class. 

Participant Requirements

San Francisco Ballet School Master Class participants must be at least 15 years old by the date of the class. All participants need to have achieved an advanced level of ballet training in order to participate; however, no audition is necessary. Women should be prepared to dance on pointe.
