Thank you for your interest in our Downstage Arts Cohort! 

We are so glad you're here for the beginning of our journey.   

This class is held in partnership with Downstage Arts and is free of charge to Juniors and Seniors. 


This will be a 2 year cohort (1 year if you're a senior this year).  You must fill out an application if interested.  After you fill out the application, you'll be contacted to schedule an interview.  


This class will meet 4:30 - 6:30 on Thursdays (see class description for fall schedule) and dissect different parts of the college audition process, from finding schools the students are interested in, preparing audition material, filming self tapes, scheduling auditions, and more.  We will get them in touch with department heads to schedule private meetings, sample classes, and experience what life on that campus will be like.  Students will leave the class feeling confident and ready to conquer any situation a higher education audition might throw their way!


This class is designed for students who wish to pursue a degree in the performing arts.  If you have questions,  send us an e-mail!
