Class

Students will audition in either the Intermediate or Advanced classes, or a combination of both. The student may assist in the decision of what class they prefer by speaking with faculty during check-in. Participation in both ballet and modern technique classes are requested. Pointe work will not be required. In addition to the classes, the student is invited to observe other classes during the day.

Solo

The prospective candidate is also asked to perform a solo piece of approximately two to three minutes. This piece is the applicant’s choice, and can be either self-choreographed or a work set on the applicant. The solo will be performed in the studio after the candidate has taken a technique class. (No tap, please).

Resume

A dance resume is requested.

Interview

Individual interviews and lunch will occur before classes. It is recommended you bring a nutritious snack with you.
