Acceptance to the 2016 Summer Program is by audition only.

Prospective students can audition in one of two ways: in-person at a national audition class, or by submitting a video audition.

Required Audition Materials

Regardless which audition method is chosen, all prospective students must submit the following materials during registration:

  1. Headshot (4x6 inches, jpeg)
  2. Letter of Intent (pdf): one to two pages describing your aspirations and intentions as an artist and why you believe our program can help you achieve those goals.
  3. Dance Resume (pdf): one page maximum (please include your full contact information at the top of the page)
  4. Audition fee (credit card only)

Audition In-Person at a National Audition Class

From January through February, we travel across the country conducting our annual National Audition Tour. You may register for an audition class online or in person. Pre-register online and receive a $10 discount off the in-person audition fee. Pre-Registration will also help expedite the audition result notification process. Visit the 2016 Audition Tour page for more information about the process and a list of audition locations.
