HOW TO APPLY

To apply for an Audition, please complete the audition form below and submit within 2 days of your audition date.

Venue: All private auditions are held at National College of Dance – 151 Young Road Lambton, NSW 2299.

Auditioning in Person

If you are completing a private audition, we run our auditions a little differently!

We’d like you to experience what it’s like to be a full-time dancer, so for your audition we invite you to attend the college for the whole day. In the morning you will enjoy a warm-up of Body Conditioning, as well as a two hour classical ballet class with the current full-time students. After a short break, you will complete your audition pieces and then attend an interview with the Artistic Director, Brett Morgan.

An audition dance piece will consists of:

  • Classical and/or contemporary, lyrical solo (minimum 1-1.5min piece, but no longer than 2.5mins)

You are not required to bring a costume. Please wear your normal dance wear, bring pointe shoes, ballet flats and contemporary foot wear if worn.

Our facilities do have showers, so feel free to bring a change of clothing and shower accessories.

After your audition, you will have a 30min interview with Mr Morgan. In this meeting he will provide you with valuable feedback and discuss with you your career options and aspirations.
