Want to CONNECT with Hubbard Street in Summer 2022? Read on for everything you need to know about the audition process:

  • Dancers are accepted into the Hubbard Street Summer Intensive Programs by audition only. Results will be sent by email within two weeks of a dancer’s scheduled audition date.

  • Pre-registration for auditions is required for all scheduled auditions, and will close 48 hours before the scheduled audition date. 
  • Dancers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including any boosters for which they are eligible, and wear a mask to attend our live auditions. Proof of vaccination will be required during check-in, on the day of the audition.

  • Auditions will consist of a ballet class and based on the discretion of the artistic panel, dancers may learn Hubbard Street repertory or be asked to improvise.
  • A leotard, tights, and ballet shoes must be worn for ballet class. Hair should be pulled back, and out of your face. Hubbard Street does not perform works on pointe therefore; pointe work is not a part of our Summer curriculum and should not be worn at our audition. Form fitting apparel can be worn for repertory as long as body lines are clearly visible.
  • A dancer must meet our minimum age requirements by June 1, 2022, meaning a dancer must be at least 18 years of age by June 1, 2022 to attend our 18 – 24-year-old audition, and a dancer must be 13 years old by June 1, 2022 to attend our 13 – 17-year-old audition. Dancers auditioning at our 13 – 17-year-old audition will be invited to the program that is best suited for their current skill level.
  • On the day of the audition, dancers are required to bring the following items:
    • 1) Resume (1 page max): Resumes should list the dancer's performance and training experience to date, primary dance instructors, and current place of training.

    • 2) 8x10 Headshot: Headshots need to resemble how the dancer appears in the studio. It does not have to be a professional photo, nor a specific color. A black & white photo is acceptable.

    • 3) Vaccination Card: A vaccination card showing full vaccination against COVID-19, including with any boosters for which you are eligible, must be shown at the time of check-in to attend our live auditions. A photo of your vaccination card will also be permitted. While a vaccination card is not required to attend our virtual auditions, please note that dancers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including with any boosters for which you are eligible, to participate in our 2022 Summer Intensive Programs.

    • 4) Signed Waiver: Dancers must print, sign, and bring page 3 of our waiver to the audition. All dancers under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian signature included on the waiver. Click the button below to download the waiver.



  • A limited amount of financial aid is available to dancers attending our Summer Intensives. Dancers are eligible to apply for aid after they have been accepted into our Summer Intensives. Aid will be based on financial need.
  • If you are unable to attend a live audition, you may attend one of our virtual audition dates. Video auditions will not be accepted for our 2022 Summer Intensives.
  • If you are using a shared studio space for one of our virtual auditions, you will need to sign in from your own device.
  • In the event of inclement weather, updates or audition cancellations will be posted on the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s website. Should we need to cancel an audition due to weather or any other unforeseeable cause, dancers who pre-registered for the audition, will be granted the opportunity to attend one of our virtual auditions.
