Audition Policies

  • Auditions will last approximately two hours. Audition fees are $40 for all sites. All audition fees are strictly non-refundable except in the case of audition cancellation by PBT School.
  • Audition dates and times are subject to change at any time. In the case of schedule changes, PBT School will make every effort to contact dancers ahead of time. We encourage dancers to check their emails the morning of their audition date for any late-minute changes.
  • All dancers must pre-register to attend an audition. Registration for each audition will close 24 hours before the audition date. We will not accept registration after this deadline and will not accept same-day registration at the audition sites.
  • Dancers who would like to move their registration to another audition location must notify the school no later than 72 hours in advance of the original audition date by emailing the Registrar and Database Manager, Laura Caton, at lcaton@pittsburghballet.org with their full name, original audition date, and the audition date they would like to move to. Changes are not guaranteed and are subject to space availability. 
  • Should a dancer miss an audition date for any reason, they may reach out to the school at the email address above to reschedule for a future audition date, as long as there is space available and the registration deadline for the new site has not passed. 
  • Dancers agree to adhere to all COVID protocols as determined by PBT School. Dancers who do not adhere to COVID protocols will not be admitted to the audition or may be asked to leave and will not be refunded their fee.
  • Please note that all participants in our 2022 summer and/or 2022-23 programming will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start of their program.
  • Dancers who register for a Zoom virtual audition will receive a link to the Zoom meeting approximately 24 hours prior to their audition time.
  • All dancers will receive email notification of their results no later than three weeks after their audition date with further instructions for registration if applicable.
