Residential Performance Company – Online Audition Information



Hello and Welcome to NYB, 

We are so excited to welcome you to our 2022 Residential Performance Company auditions. 

We can’t wait to see you on the day, and we hope that you will have a really enjoyable and happy time dancing with us. During the audition our Moving Minds practitioner will lead a short mental and physical warm up to prepare you for the ballet class and to settle any nerves that you may encounter, allowing you to be the best that you can be in the audition class. You will then be led through a full ballet class by one of our NYB teachers before finishing the session with a gentle cool down. Senior dancers may be asked to demonstrate pointe work. 

All our practitioners from Ciara, who will be working on the front desk, to Sayaka and Emma, our ballet teachers, have been a part of an audition process themselves before, so they each understand how nerve-wracking the process can be. Please come reassured that we are here to support you and be prepared and ready to challenge yourself! To help we have collated some of our teams’ best audition advice here.

We will let you know the outcome of your preliminary audition on Thursday March 24th 2022.

Below are the dates for the final auditions, we will give you an indication of exact timings for the final audition in your email response.

8th May- Senior Company – The Place, London

With all best wishes,
Jo Meredith (NYB Creative Director) and the NYB Team.
