Please read and follow instructions: 

  • Complete the form for each dancer separately.
  • Please complete the registration form within 15 minutes once the form is opened.
  • You will see a pre-registration completion message and receive an email confirmation when you have successfully submitted the registration form.

Online pre-registration is NOT complete if you don't see a pre-registration completion message. You are NOT eligible for Step#2, Dancers Registration at Mountain West Ballet, thus not eligible for audition if the form is not successfully submitted, i.e. if you get a white screen.

 

If you do not receive a confirmation email, please check your junk mail box or spam mail box. Email Sandy Brown to verify dancer's contact email address is correct.

Due to bandwidth limitation of the website and popularity of the production, if you wait till the last day or the last few hours to try to submit the online pre-registration form, you are almost guaranteed to get a white screen, which means the form is not submitted and online pre-registration not complete.

Getting a white screen is not an acceptable excuse for not completing the online pre-registration. If you fail to complete the online pre-registration, you are not eligible for audition.

 

*** We are using new software for the online registration. Please contact Sandy Brown if you have any question or run into any problem.
