1. Are male students welcome?
Absolutely. Although typically a higher percentage of students at Pointe to the Future are female, male dancers attend regularly and are encouraged to audition. Our world-class faculty and the exceptional quality of Tulsa Ballet's company dancers make Pointe to the Future an ideal place for young men to further refine their technique.

2. What do auditions consist of?
Regular auditions are conducted in groups by age-level and will consist of a classical ballet class including both barre and center work.

3. What will the instructor look for?
The instructors base their decision upon the following criteria: technical ability; musicality; quickness of mind; ability to pick up and retain combinations and corrections; and awareness of line and quality of movement.

4. What do I put on my audition video?
Video auditions should be on regular VHS cassette or DVD and must be labeled with the applicant's name, mailing address, phone number, age and years of training. Audition videos should be no longer than 10 minutes and include barre, center, petite and grande allegro, and pirouettes. Please include multiple combinations. Pointe shoes should be worn only if the dancer has already been placed on pointe by her regular dance instructor. Video auditions will be accepted if postmarked by March 15, 2014. You may choose to ask your regular dance instructor for help in creating the video.

5. After my audition, when will I get a response?
Response letters will be mailed approximately two weeks after the audition. Responses to auditions submitted by videotape will be made approximately two weeks after they are received. For prompt notification, please include an email address with your audition form or videotape.
