The first International Ballet Company Audition "Grand Audition" was held back in 2016 in Brussels. It was founded by David & Daria Makhateli, directors of D&D Art Productions. Grand Audition is the first international audition platform for professional ballet dancers and graduates students of ballet schools.
Grand Audition is an exclusive project and has no relation to any other similar projects made by our analogy. Over the years, Grand Audition welcomed participants from various parts of the world. We had the great pleasure of presenting and collaborating with the Artistic Directors from ABT, Ballet de l'Opéra National de Bordeaux, Lithuanian National Ballet, Polish National Ballet, Norwegian National Ballet, Slovenian National Ballet, Finnish National Ballet, Royal Swedish Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Leipzig Ballet, Zurich Ballet, Ballet Dortmund, Hong Kong Ballet, Semperoper Ballett Dresden, Northern Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Houston Ballet, Ballet of the National Theatre Brno, The Czech National Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Ballet Nacional de Panama, Ballet Theatre Du Capitole Toulouse, and Ballet de l'Opéra National de Paris.
Every year, ballet companies have supported the dancers and made multiple contract offers at the Grand Audition. We are incredibly thankful and grateful to all the Artistic Directors for their time, and the generous support they have offered to participants during Grand Audition events.
