* Auditioning is an important part of performing arts training and even students not pursuing enrolment in Closed/Invitational courses and programs are welcome and encouraged to do the Placement Audition for the experience. We request though that those not pursuing enrolment in Closed/Invitational courses and programs for the immediately upcoming year inform us by so indicating on the Audition Registration Form prior to auditioning.
Participation in Summer Intensive Weeks training is highly recommended or required depending on program/situation. During the Summer Intensive weeks, along with technique training in all our offered disciplines, we develop choreography that often forms a basis for repertoire for the upcoming year’s Company and Division numbers. Sometimes those who do not participate fully in the Intensive weeks find it difficult to keep up in the September Company and Division Workshops.
