Required only for new applicants. If you have been previously cast in a North Pointe Ballet production, you do not need to submit a video.
The video should only show the applicant by themselves in dance attire. Dance steps performed can be a prepared solo, improvised solo, part of a memorized routine/combination, or showcase of the following skills: pirouettes, traveling turns, petite allegro, and grand allegro. Staff will be able to assess with any of these, we do not want the video portion to intimidate potential applicants, just to showcase their current dance abilities.
Submit a brief 1–2 paragraph essay written by the dancer or their parent/guardian answering the question, “What would the opportunity to perform with a professional ballet company mean to you or your child?”
