Photograph requirements

Auditions, Associate Programme and Intensive Courses

Please ensure that your images do not exceed 10MB in total (for all photographs).

All photographs must be uploaded onto the online application forms for auditions and intensive courses. Remember to name each individual image and adhere to the requirements shown below.

Emailed photographs are not accepted.

The positions shown in the diagrams for Junior Associate entry are visual guidelines only, for other programmes please also read the detailed descriptions of the positions and speak with your regular dance teacher and with their guidance practise the positions in front of a mirror before taking the photos.

It is not a requirement to use a professional photographer, however we advise you to transfer images from your phone (if used) onto a laptop or pc to upload onto the online application.
