With SFB the best way to become a candidate for the company is to enroll in the school or audition to become a trainee. Another route that could have potential is to participate in a competition with which SFB has a scholarship association.
We recommend that dancers interested in SFB have an understanding of the company’s history and the background and vision of the Artistic Director. It is valuable to research the repertoire and what kind of dancers are currently being hired; training, body type etc.
Although we accept auditions on a year-round rolling basis, we update this page according to our specific needs. Always start on the website!
We prefer auditions submitted via email, though mail is acceptable. Our audition-specific email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
A complete audition package includes resume/CV, photos, and videos (performance is best, though class/studio variations are fine too). The resume/CV should include age, height, nationality, training/teachers, dates of training, and rep/choreographers. Ideally, the dancer will communicate why they want to dance for SFB and what they value in our company.
A dancer who goes about auditioning in a professional, careful manner really stands out. Even if they aren’t a good fit for the company, we appreciate professional and warm communication.
We would advise students to make sure their training is well rounded and not strictly in one tradition. Not only including other forms of dance in their curriculum but also different approaches to classical ballet. A company like SFB has an extremely diverse repertoire and it’s members need to easily understand and fall into a variety of styles.
