We will conduct these auditions in our Fort Walton Beach studios, located at 310 Perry Ave SE, under the following guidelines:

  • Please arrive no more than 5-10 minutes prior to scheduled audition time. Check in will take place outside the main doors, where you will wait until your group is called inside.
  • We ask that parents wait outside or in their cars during their child’s audition, as our lobby will be closed. We will escort each group outside after the audition, to ensure each child is handed off to their parents.
  • Please remind your child to use the restroom before coming to the audition.
  • We ask that students leave all belongings with their parents ( no bags or additional clothing will be allowed in the building).
  • Dancers will be required to sanitize their hands and have their temperature taken upon entering the building.
  • Each group of auditions will be spaced accordingly upon entering the studio and during the duration of the audition.
  • Our staff will need to be hands on with you child and will be supplied with masks and gloves.
  • If your child or any person in your household is experiencing any symptoms or illnesses, we ask that you inform our office and we will make other arrangements for the audition.

Auditions are open to all children in the community and selection is made solely on the child’s ballet potential.
