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.

Annual Auditions

Auditions are held once annually in August for the season’s Company. Auditions are open to the public. Production auditions for Company and Supporting Roles are held twice annual for our Winter and Spring productions. Production auditions are also open to the public. Visit our Events & Productions section for more information.

Audition Requirements

  • Must be en pointe
  • Attend regular weekly ballet classes
  • Have a current GPA of 3.0

Company Requirements

Company Members are held to a Company Contract, signed annually. The contract outlines requirements and expectations of all Company Members, including participation in at least one annual production, maintenance of a 3.0 GPA, community service, and behavior expectations. This is all explained at the annual Company Welcome Day.
