College Prep Sessions
Time TBD on individual basis, depending on interest

For high school juniors and seniors who are preparing to move on to college and hoping to major in the arts. We will offer two sessions, ranging 3-6 weeks each, depending on class size. They will be broken down as follows:

In the fall: We’ll help students learn how to research schools, identify where they’ll “fit” the best, explore the benefits of BFA vs. BA, compile a list of their personal target schools, “reach schools,” and “easier than other” options.

In the winter: We’ll focus on the college audition process and help students build a book with pieces to present for schools, provide individual coaching for audition songs & monologues, present tips for how to nail a dance audition (even if you’re not a dancer), even help them with what to wear to their auditions.

$85 for 8 Sessions (A non-refundable $15 deposit is required, but included in the $85) ). If you enroll for both sessions of college prep, cost is $160 total and $85 individually.
