Auditions: The Asheville ballet

The Asheville Ballet will hold open auditions for our professional production of Spring into Dance: A Movement Bouquet on Saturday, January 25th from 1:30-5:00pm at our studio at 4 Weaverville Highway. Audition Fee is $10. 


We will begin the audition with Ballet technique class at 1:30, and then at 2:45 we will continue with additional movement by choreographers. Parts in classical and contemporary works are available for intermediate and advanced dancers from all studios for ages 15 to adult and students to professionals. 


Spring into Dance will be performed at the Diana Wortham Theatre on Friday and Saturday evenings, May 29th and 30th, 2020. Most rehearsals will be Friday evenings between 4pm and 9pm and Saturday afternoons between 2:45 and 8pm, beginning January 31, plus some Sunday rehearsals including May 10, 17, and 24, and technical rehearsals at Wortham Theatre Tuesday – Thursday, May 26-28.

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.
