Prepare selections from two contrasting songs, a ballad, an up-tempo:

  • Select 1632 measures (about one minute per song) that best demonstrate your vocal ability. It is acceptable to start in the middle of a song if you so choose.

  • Students may use pre-recorded music, karaoke or instrumental only, play the piano – or have someone else play- with you singing, or sing without music.

  • An accompanist will be provided on the day of in person auditions, please bring sheet music in the appropriate key. Students may choose to sing a capella.

Vocal Recording Tips:

  • Make sure your face is square in the frame of the video.

  • At the start of the video, clearly state your name and your two chosen song titles (see above), then go right into your first song selection.

  • You may follow your first song by taking a moment to breathe and going right into your second selection.

Dance Audition Video:

(Digital submissions only) Learn the choreography from this video.

  • When ready to record, double-check that your entire body can be seen in the video (especially your feet!). You may dance along with the music using this YouTube track.

  • To start, clearly state your name and go straight into performing.

  • Don’t forget! It’s important to remember the steps, but it’s also important to look like you’re having fun too!
