How to audition

There are 3 ways to apply / audition for our Summer Dance Platform.

– Attend an in-person audition
– Attend a virtual live audition
– Submit a video audition

Pre-registration is required for all scheduled auditions (in-person or virtual) and will close 48 hours prior to registration date.

There is limited capacity for LIVE IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL LIVE auditions. We recommend early application.

All dancers applying must be at least age 14 by JUL 11 / 2022. No exceptions will be made.

Audition results will be sent by email within one to two weeks following the audition. Accepted students are required to confirm their spot and submit their deposit by the registration deadline in their acceptance email. We will have a waitlist for dancers not immediately accepted in the program. Accepted applicants who have not submitted their registration will have their place offered to dancers on the waiting list.
