I'm under the impression that Cleopatra's variation which is danced by Dorothée Gilbert has been filmed when she was still a POB's school pupil!

My daughter is 16 and she sent a letter and some photos and was very surprised to be invited to the audition on the 30th. She is pretty scared as she doesn't know how many people will be in the audition and what to expect. I kind of think she might be wasting her time as I understand there are only four places available this year and the audition is open to 16-25 year olds so I guess there'll be some amazing dancers competing! Does anyone have experience of doing the audition?

there will be a ballet lesson teached by a POB's professor, probably Elisabeth Maurin.
The first round is the barre, the second round the center work and the third round is Cleopatra's variation.
Most of the dancers are eliminated after the first round.
FRom what I've been told, the experience is quite intense, but it could be worth the trip if she's only competing for the experience.
A lot of very strong dancers will be there (about 100) so if were you, I just would take the opportunity as a learning experience!

Calista just turned 19 years old. She's going to begin her second year with the corps de ballet. She repeated twice the first division, because she was 15 years old during the first one.
As for the others:
Camille is 21, but is a graduate from the National Conservatory of Paris, Alice is 19 (graduated from the school in 2009) , Melissa (graduated in 2008) 20 and Juliette 18 (graduated in 2009). They will be with the compagny for the second or third year.
Victoire is 17, Caroline is 18 and Clothilde is 16. They were part of this year graduating class, and did dance some performances with the compagny while being pupils of the school. Clothilde will probably repeat her year.
I don't know the others girls. I've heard that Miss Tirabassi is coming from Milano's Scala's school.

They have to audition again each year in order to have another one-year contract, until they won a permanent position.
