About the Intensive

This annual 5-day intensive prepares students for auditions required for entrance into college performing arts programs. The weekend will consist of masterclasses taught by industry professionals, collegiate professors and representatives from top schools. This intensive is being offered at a competitive market price! There are limited spots available, sign up soon!

Rising 10-12th grade students are able to participate fully in the intensive weekend. Students who are rising 9-10th grade students may attend the weekend as an observer (participating in certain workshops and mock dance call).
