2023 SUMMER INTENSIVES
We’re here to answer your questions
Do I have to audition to attend?
The Summer Intensives include an audition process to make sure our program will be a great experience for all participants. The first step in the audition process is to submit an audition video. We recommend that you submit an existing video of a combination or routine that you’re particularly proud of. Our creative team is reviewing all auditions on a rolling basis and will notify you of your admissions decision within approximately seven days of submission.
Who should audition?
We designed our Summer Intensive experience to be a great fit for intermediate to advanced dancers between the ages of 13 and 18. If that’s you, we would love to check out your audition!
What is the audition deadline?
Admissions for the Summer Intensive are done on a rolling basis. Spots are limited so we recommend audition as soon as possible if you’re interested in attending.
When will I hear back about my audition?
You should hear back about the status of your audition within 48 hours. After our Creative Director reviews your audition video you’ll receive an email with your next steps. If you don’t hear back from us, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I hear back about the status of my audition either way?
Yes! After our Creative Director reviews your audition video you’ll receive an email with your next steps, whatever the outcome.
