Dance Auditions

Distance Auditions & Interviews

All live virtual audition and interview dates have concluded for the season. You will be required to upload a video recording of your audition through uarts.getacceptd.com. Follow the specific audition and interview submission instructions listed below. 

Uploaded Materials

Before your live virtual audition, all materials should be uploaded through the Get Acceptd online submission platform. This includes

  • a solo dance;

  • a warm-up section which can include barre and/or floor work showing things like pliés, tendus, ronds de jambes, grand battements, and/or developpés;

  • center/phrase work which can include improvisation, adagio, small and/or large jumps, turns, etc.;

  • a résumé;

  • a headshot and 

  • an information form.

Your solo dance should be at least one minute in length and a maximum of two minutes. It should feature the area of dance in which you are most proficient and feels most comfortable, and may be choreographed by you or someone else. Your solo can be footage from a performance or recorded in a studio or an alternative location. Vimeo is the preferred platform for uploading, and we request you use a landscape view. Before you upload your audition footage, be sure to check for sound levels, framing, focus and lighting.

Audition Attire

Dress comfortably and wear clothing that allows for movement. Sensible attire includes leotards, footless tights, leggings, dance pants and tee shirts. Dance shoes can be worn (ballet shoes, jazz shoes, sneakers) but are not required.

Space Considerations

  • We do not expect you to audition in a studio. Many students will be moving in their bedrooms, living rooms, backyards, etc.

  • Try to find a space where you will have minimal interruptions and where you can reach your arms and legs in all directions, including while lying on the floor.

UArts reserves the right to re-audition any applicant admitted on the basis of a submitted audition. In such cases, the university also reserves the right to reconsider and withdraw the original offer of admission or scholarship if necessary.
