General Audition Information

Admission into The Performing Arts Project's programs is by audition only. In 2021, we'll be holding live online auditions; dates below. Applicants can also send in digital auditions. All applicants that attend a live online audition or submit digital auditions by Feb. 28th will be notified the first week of March. After that, we will accept applications on a rolling basis until all spots are filled. We won't be holding live on-site auditions this year, which is a bummer but the responsible thing to do.

Students can audition for Blueprint, Compass, and Panorama at the same time. The programs break down as follows...

Blueprint: Performance Training & College Audition Prep for students in high school or gap year

Compass: Dance For Movers for students in high school or gap year

Panorama: Performance Training Through Artistic Exploration for students in high school (16 and up), gap year, college, and beyond.

If admitted, students can attend either a five-week option that includes both Blueprint and Panorama or a three-week option that includes Blueprint and Compass. You'll be asked to let us know which programs you'd like to be considered for on your application. However, we may sometimes offer a spot in a different program or additional program if we think that’s where you’d thrive.

Each program has a slightly different audition procedure. Take a careful look at the audition instructions for the program(s) you're considering.

The same audition process, will cover both in-person and live online programming. Students are notified about audition results via email by the end of the first week in March. All students who audition will be contacted.
