Check out this site. Try the Master Sites section. Most companies have web sites, and most of them list the repertoire. This will show you whether they are more classical or contemporary. Usually there are some photos too. There should also be an address or phone number to contact them, and maybe an email address. You will need to contact each company to find out their audition policies.

In my experiences in auditioning through Europe, I found that most of the bigger national companies have strong classical backgrounds and some neo and modern thrown on top; the smaller companies are more centered around a specfic choreographer as a kind of 'think tank' for new works and ideas. Smaller companies in Europe seem to be much more aimed towards progressive ideas than they do here in the states.
When I auditioned, I sent my resume and photos telling the dates I planned to be in the area and then auditioned by taking company class. Most companies were fine by that.
