All performance students are required to audition prior to registration. Audition dates are March 8 & 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Fine Arts Center, 30 West Dale Street, Colorado Springs 80903.

Prior to your audition time, you must prepare and memorize a short song (appropriate musical theatre or pop music selection) that lasts no more than one minute (16 to 32 bars), and that shows your strengths and vocal range. You must bring sheet music that is legible and in the correct key. No boom boxes will be allowed. An accompanist will be provided.

Memorize a short monologue of your choice, either classical or contemporary, which should not be any longer than one minute in length.

In addition to the above, perspective students will also be required to go through a movement/dance segment as part of the audition process. Please bring dance clothing to the audition - something you can move in comfortably, including dance shoes. If you do not own dance shoes, sneakers are acceptable.

When auditions have been completed all those who auditioned will be contacted by Friday, March 25 to inform them whether they have been selected for the program. Those selected will then be provided with all of the materials needed to complete registration.
