Do you have to audition to participate in a Summer Academy?

Generally, our Academies do not require an audition to be admitted into the program.  However, some courses may require an audition for placement so that we may position students in the appropriate groups and/or ensembles based on skill level.  

  • For Dance: There will be no formal auditions for acceptance into the program, but we do ask that students submit a video and personal statement.  These materials are to ensure students are at an advanced level, and are shared with our instructors to help with lesson plan creation that better meet students' needs and goals.

  • For Chamber Music: In-person auditions will take place so students can be properly placed in appropriate ensembles. These auditions do not affect their enrollment in the course.

More specific information regarding these auditions can be found on the individual Academy pages.
