Auditions: The Asheville ballet


SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 12:00-3:00PM

Auditions for the Asheville Ballet's Fall Concert (which is September 17 and 18, 2021) will be Saturday, June 19th from 12:00 – 3:00pm at our studio at
4 Weaverville Highway, Asheville. All advanced dancers, ages 18 and up, are welcome! Audition fee is $10 (cash or check: The Asheville Ballet).


*All dancers must wear a face covering at all times, for the safety of everyone.* The audition will begin with a Ballet barre at 12:00, after which dancers will learn excerpts presented by our resident choreographers. Please bring jazz sneakers or very clean street sneakers for one of the pieces.

Please fill out an audition form in advance. 

If you have any questions, or if you want to be involved but are out of town or busy celebrating Juneteenth with your family on June 19, please contact us as soon as possible!

Auditions for our professional production of the Nutcracker will be held in September, 2021. More information will be forthcoming here


The Asheville Ballet auditions dancers on a show-to-show basis and often invites selected performers to continue performing in future productions throughout the year. We offer a number of paid adult professional dancing positions as well as college apprenticeships.


Please email us or call our studio office at (828)252-4761 with any questions. We also accept emailed video/headshot/dance shot/resume submissions to

We will review your material and contact you promptly! 


In addition, students from both the Academy of Ballet and Contemporary Dance as well as other studios in the Western North Carolina region are cast both in ensemble and soloists roles in our productions. In other words, you do not have to be a student attending classes with the Academy of Ballet and Contemporary Dance to perform with us. We are delighted to include the entire community in their passion to perform, both professional and student alike. All that we ask is that students are taking at least two dance technique classes per week, somewhere, in order to maintain the high-caliber of artistry that we have become so known for.
