Video Auditions

Students who are unable to attend the audition tour may submit a video audition electronically. Video auditions for the 2020 Summer Intensives will be reviewed beginning January 1, 2020. Video auditions are accepted on an ongoing basis, as space permits. It is highly recommended that students submit video auditions by February 1, as space in our programs fills up quickly. Students who submit a video audition after February 1, may not receive a result before registration opens. The prospective student should be easily identifiable in the video. Result emails are sent to the email provided within 14 days once video and payment are received.

 

Note: If you are a student aged 12 and under and you live within 150 miles of the Joffrey Academy, you must attend the Summer Intensive Audition. If you are unable to attend the Audition, you are required to arrange an in-person audition during which you will be observed in a Joffrey Academy class and considered for the Summer Intensive programs. Students aged 12 and under living further than 150 miles of the Joffrey Academy may still submit a video audition.

 

Step 1: Register and Pay Audition Fee
