Royal ballet school and dutch national ballet academy ?
Since for these two schools, the summer school auditions are based on the photos you send in, how do they determine if you're technically capable enough for their intensive/school? I know that a certain amount of ballet technique does go into taking a good quality arabesque photo (etc.) but I feel like it doesn't say much about a student's dancing and artistry.

They don’t bother with any dancer who doesn’t have the right body. They can check turnout, proportions etc. from the pictures. The best dancers end up in the higher levels the ones that don’t have the best training end up in lower levels. They figure if you were born with the right gifts, they have the best shot of making a professional dancer out of you. Artistry and musicality doesn’t count for anything in a ballet career if you aren’t born with the right body and facility for ballet. While artistry and musicality are important for a ballet career, without the right bone and muscle structure along with facility you won’t go far.
