Auditions cannot be watched. Students should wear a leotard, tights, leggings, or any other comfortable versatile clothing and ballet shoes. The audition will last about 2 to 3 hours.
Dance: High school students should prepare by completing four years of English, math and social science, including economics, geography, government and history; three years of science and foreign language; and one year of fine arts courses, among other subjects. Courses in computers, music and advanced math, as well as any dance training will help you prepare to major in dance.
