What to Prepare
Prospective students should prepare one song and one monologue that best shows their skill and range. You will be allotted a total of 2 minutes for your entire audition from the first word or note to the last (this includes the time between the two pieces). Please be sure you’ve timed your audition package. You do not need to fill the entire 2 minutes. 30 seconds of each piece is perfectly acceptable. Both monologue and song must be memorized.
A pianist will be provided for the audition. Students should bring sheet music with piano accompaniment. Students may also sing to a karaoke track or other instrumental recording. CD player and auxiliary input will be provided. Students may not sing acapella (without music) or with a vocal track.
Students will also be taught a short dance combination. Please bring a change of clothes appropriate for dancing – form-fitting solid colored clothing that is flexible and allows for movement, soft jazz shoes or ballet shoes, no dangling earrings or bracelets, ladies should have hair pulled back and out of their face.
