The Portland Ballet is holding auditions for its Summer Ballet Intensive on January 15 at noon. Dancers ages 11-18 who audition will be part of a free ballet class.

In the Summer Ballet Intensive, dancers will strengthen technique in state-of-the-art studios and learn new perspectives from distinguished teachers. Each dancer will receive individual attention from The Portland Ballet’s expert faculty. This is a ballet-focused program, though dancers will also train in modern, jazz, and lecture workshops on wellness and injury prevention. The Portland Ballet’s Summer Intensive stands out for its balance of intense training with nurturing support, all leading up to a performance at the end of the five-week session.

Admission into the Summer Ballet Intensive is by audition for new students, though current TPB students can simply enroll. Auditions will be held at The Portland Ballet at 6250 SW Capitol Highway. Video auditions will be accepted from those who live out of the area. There is no audition fee, though dancers must fill out a registration form.
