The Art of Applying and Auditioning for Performing Artists
Limited Capacity seats available

Applying and auditioning for professional training programs (from short-term intensive workshops to university B.F.A. degrees) in circus and related performing arts, as well as for performance opportunities, can be a successful adventure of personal & professional growth, learning, and network-building. And it can be done with less stress than you may think! Come discuss tips for maximizing your opportunities while taking care of yourself/your student. Practice your "asks and intros" with DFC youth who have been through it all, and the director of the small youth circus troupe they worked with who saw them - and their parents - through their early applications & auditions for circus & related performance & training programs. Open to Youth with interest in applying for professional performing training programs or performance opportunities, parent(s)/guardian(s), and coaches.
