Company & Trainee Auditions

Auditions for NFB’s Company and Trainee programs take place in May of each year. 

NFB’s Trainee program is designed for students in the 6th grade and up with at least three years of training. Company auditions are open to students entering the 8th grade and up with at least six years of formal training. Additionally, female dancers must have two years on pointe to audition for the NFB Company. Auditions for the 2021-2022 season have already taken place. Additional information for next season’s auditions will be posted as it becomes available.

Visit the Pre-Professional Program Audition page for more information on that process.

Professional dancers wishing to audition for demi soloist, soloist and principal guest artist positions should contact NFB Artistic Director Todd Eric Allen at to schedule an audition. Dancers may also send a headshot, bio, a few dance pictures and four short video clips of both classical and contemporary/modern works.
