Before students are accepted, they must also take part in an audition process. These auditions require potential students to present monologues, a movement piece, and a song excerpt. Additional aspects of the audition process might include some improvisation and script reading, as well as a personal interview. The university provides auditions via Zoom if auditioning in person is not an option.
Once accepted, students will participate in a “conservatory training program” for three years. The program is described as “intensive” and includes a wide array of skills. Some of the exciting and crucial topics covered by the program are:
-Effectively participating in an ensemble (this includes the important skill of learning how
to be respect all aspects of the ensemble).
– Developing a character’s psychology, image, voice, etc.
– Becoming comfortable with a variety of performance locations.
– Becoming skilled at cultivating a strong performance presence.
– Both contemporary and classical theory.
– And more!
