Auditions and Company Class

English National Ballet does not currently have any contracts available for dancers.

If you would like to request an opportunity to join a Company class in order to be seen by our ballet staff, please submit the following:

  • CV or resume – including current position, professional experience and classical training
  • Ballet photos – these must be full length, and we recommend submitting no more than 3 different photos
  • Video link or DVD of dance footage (this is essential, and submissions will not be considered without it) - this can be either on-stage or in a studio

All materials will be reviewed by the Artistic Team, but class invitation is not guaranteed. As we receive so many requests, we regret that we can only respond to those who are invited to join a Company class. Otherwise, we will keep your details on file for a maximum of 6 months.

Please send your materials to Lia Buddle, Artistic Assistant via email at or via post to English National Ballet, Markova House, 39 Jay Mews, London SW7 2ES (UK).

Requests to join Company class at English National Ballet

We regret that as we receive such high numbers of requests to join Company class, invitations can only be extended to those who have submitted audition materials as above, or to those professional dancers who currently have a Principal position with another ballet company. 

If you are a Principal dancer who would like to join a class with us, please email to request possible dates.
