Students work with a team of professionals and university instructors, learning how to prepare for the audition and application process. Instructors have extensive professional experience and teach at high-profile theatre training programs.

Focus will be on the preparation of audition songs, developing movement and dance skills and identifying higher level training programs to fit personal goals and experience levels. The session culminates with a showcase performance of student work.

During this one-week program, students participate in the following classes and sessions:

  • Acting technique
  • Dance technique
  • Vocal ensemble studio work
  • Audition preparation
