HOW TO APPLY
Admission to the Conservatory’s Summer Intensive Program is by audition only. While a live audition is highly preferred, those applicants unable to attend any scheduled audition may submit a Video Audition in its place. Dancers who wish to be considered for our Year Round Program must audition in person.
The application process below is mandatory for all applicants (including previous participants and Video Audition submissions) in order to be considered for our programs. Please make every effort to complete your application at least 48 hours before the scheduled audition you would like to attend.

- Letter of Intent (1-page describing your artistic goals and interests─ PDF format only)
- Resume (list your dance training, teachers, choreography studied, and performance experience─ PDF format only)
- Request application by clicking the button above. Link to application will be provided immediately upon submitting the request form.
- Fill out and submit the application.
- VIDEO AUDITIONS: Please be sure to include a link to Vimeo or Youtube with your video audition in the space provided.
- Please print a hard copy of your headshot and Pages 1-2 ONLY of your submitted application. Once your application is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation from forms-receipts-noreply[at]google.com. The body of that email contains a summary of your responses. Please be sure to print Pages 1-2 of that summary, stapled together with a recent headshot (no photo paper please), to bring with you to your scheduled audition.
