As part of our mission to maintain a semi-professional company, dancers are invited to join the Vacaville Ballet Company following an annual audition. Auditions are open to all dancers in the area. A select number of dancers are appointed to the ranking of Principal, Soloist, or Corps de Ballet member by the Artistic Director. Dancers may also be selected as Apprentices to the Company. Completion of an audition does not guarantee a Company invitation.

The Artistic Director extends Company invitations and ranking promotions based on a dancer’s abilities in addition to skill and merit. The dancer’s academic standing is also considered when making appointments. Because our Company dancers come from a variety of schools in the area, rankings do not correspond with a dancer’s age or ballet level at their home school.

Requirements to Audition

2017/2018 Company Audition Application

  • On pointe OR have received written permission for promotion to pointe within the next semester by Artistic Director or instructor at home school
  • Attend regular weekly ballet classes
  • Have a current GPA of 3.0

Annual Auditions

Interested dancers are invited to audition to be a part of the Company and to participate in our Spring and Holiday performances. Open auditions for the company are held once a year. Auditions for Spring and Holiday productions are held twice a year in January and August, respectively.

Company Members are invited to perform in two annual performances, Spring and Winter. Company performances expose dancers to all facets of work required to create a production, on stage and off, from aspects of set design to working backstage. This exposure allows the performers to further respect the over-all theater production.

In addition to participation in our performances, Company members are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA in their academics and participate in the Company mentoring program which is a community service program designed to connect to the community’s youth.
