All prospective students are required to schedule a placement audition. Students & Guardians will both be required to attend. The audition process is not to discourage or frighten potential students, but rather an opportunity to meet with faculty to assess goals for the year. Enrollment into the Company is not affected by the performance at the audition. Students will go through the audition/conference process every year.
