How to get into juilliard dance

College - Dance - Bachelor of Fine Arts Application & Audition Requirements

If you receive favorable prescreening results, you must register and participate in one of the in-person callback auditions in order to be considered for admission.

The Juilliard School continues to pay close attention to COVID-19 pandemic developments. We have pledged to take whatever steps are necessary to keep our applicants, students, faculty, and staff safe. We continue to seek input and guidance from our medical consultants, track CDC and local health department recommendations closely, and remain flexible in our response to conditions as they evolve. 

We also continue to focus on protocols that help limit disruptions to the Juilliard performance and academic experience – the fact remains that fewer cases in the community mean a better performance and educational experience for all. Keeping our community safe means welcoming visitors while requiring safety standards for all.

In order to keep density as low as possible, only applicants will be allowed in the building on audition days; parents, friends, and other family members will not be permitted in the building.

These policies and guidelines may continue to evolve and are subject to change. The latest information will be posted on this page as we near audition dates. 


  • If you receive favorable prescreening results, you will receive an email with instruction on how to register for your callback audition.
  • All details will be available when registering for the audition.
  • Auditions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Audition Process

  • Each audition will take place over the course of one day and consist of five parts.
  • All dancers invited to callback auditions will participate in the first three parts of the audition.
  • There will be callbacks after the fourth and fifth parts.
  • You should be prepared to spend 5-6 hours at the audition in the event that you are called back to the final section.
  • You may wish to bring lunch or a snack to the audition, as breaks between sections will not be long enough to leave the audition site.
  • Resumes, headshots, videos, and other portfolio materials are NOT required or necessary. Please do not bring these materials to the audition site.

There is no quota of dancers to be called back on each audition day. You are encouraged to choose the audition location and date that is most convenient for you.

Part 1: Ballet Technique Class (60 minutes) 
The audition begins with a ballet class that typically includes: 

  • Barre: pliés, tendus, dégagés, rond de jambe, etc. 
  • Center: adagio, petit allegrogrand allegro, etc. 

Part 2: Modern Technique Class (45 minutes)
The modern class includes:

  • A short center warm-up using the rounding and arching of the torso.
  • Phrases that travel across the floor focusing on moving rigorously through space with attention to rhythm, changes of direction, and level changes.

This section of the audition is to be performed barefoot.

Part 3: Coaching & Improvisation (45 minutes)

You will be taught and coached on a brief contemporary repertory sequence. The faculty is interested in how quickly you pick up choreography, how you respond to and incorporate corrections, and how you function as a member of an ensemble in a rehearsal-like setting. This section concludes with a short improvisation.

Part 4: Solo Performance (2 minutes)

If you are called back, you will be asked to perform one solo of your choosing, from repertory or original choreography, not to exceed two minutes in length. The purpose of the solo is to show you as a performer, and should be chosen to show your range as well as your ability to project.

You should be prepared to say the:

  • name of the solo (if it has a name)
  • choreographer
  • composer of your music (or name of artist)

Please bring recorded music as an accompaniment for your solo on a phone or tablet with an auxiliary output. The music should be downloaded to your device; streaming via WiFi may not be available in the studio.

Please do not bring elaborate costumes or props for the solo portion of the callbacks. A simple change of dress or a small prop is fine.

You may present the same solo that you submitted for prescreening if you wish.

Part 5: Interview (15 minutes) 
Based on the faculty's evaluation of the first four parts of the audition, you may be asked to stay for an interview. The purpose of the interview is to:

  • Gain insight into your interests outside of the dance studio.
  • Identify you personal and professional goals.
  • Assess whether you are intellectually and emotionally ready to enter a rigorous conservatory environment. 

Clothing Requirement 

  • You must be in a unitard, or tights and tight-fitting top, or leotard that clearly enables the faculty to observe your technique.
  • No skirts, loose-fitting tee shirts, leg warmers, or costumes are permitted.
  • Be prepared with ballet slippers, dance socks, and the ability to dance in bare feet.
  • Pointe shoes may be worn but are not necessary for this audition.

Nine years later, a wealthy textile merchant, Augustus Juilliard, died and left in his will an unprecedented legacy for the development of music. nine0004


The trustees of the will founded Juilliard High School in 1924 to help deserving students receive a musical education. In 1926, the High School and the Institute of Musical Arts were merged into a single educational institution, which later changed its name to the Julliard School to reflect the broader area of ​​the arts taught, and the school itself was geographically moved to its current building - Lincoln Center . nine0004
