Jeunesse Classique Ballet is open to all dancers from all studios and syllabus styles.  Calgary Auditions are scheduled using the RAD grade levels.  If you are not an RAD trained dancer and have a question as to which audition session is best, please contact us for assistance.


Auditions are typically held for Nutcracker in September, and our spring production in January.  Please check back here for audition details for each specific production.​


Dancers only need to attend one audition session. We have created multiple spots for the convenience of dancer scheduling.​ Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled audition to fill out registration forms and warm up.


Attire: Females: Ballet body suit, pink tights, classical bun, ballet shoes appropriate for level (Pointe Shoes: Intermediate Foundation level and up). Males: appropriate ballet attire (white shirt, black shorts, ballet shoes).
