Summer 2014 programs have concluded, but we'd love to have you join us next year! Click here to join our mailing list, and you'll be among the first to know about summer 2015 programs.

During your week here, you will work with a team of professionals and university instructors on how to successfully prepare for your auditions. Instructors have extensive experience and are working professionals or teach at high-profile theatre training programs.

The focus of this program is twofold. You will work to prepare audition songs and develop movement and dance skills. We will also help you identify the right college and higher level training programs to fit your personal goals and experience level. Classes and sessions include:

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

The session culminates with a showcase performance of student work.

Audition Requirements

Video file #3 (optional): Applicants with dance experience should include a one-minute sample of movement or dance representative of skill level (include pirouettes, jumps and any type of acrobatic movements).
