Cincinnati Ballet prefers the DVD to include solo performance material in classical and contemporary work of good quality. Ladies must show at least one work on pointe. If performance material is not available, you may send studio work that includes a variation and classwork with examples of adagio, petit and grand allegro and pirouettes. You will be notified only if Cincinnati Ballet would like to invite you to attend company class. 
We apologize but due to the volume of requests, we cannot respond personally to all applications. We can only respond to the approved applicants.
