When auditioning for students we are looking for potential, enthusiasm, personality and whether the children/teenagers are the right fit for the school. So please don’t panic if you don’t have lots of previous training or experience.

We also understand that you may be more confident in one of two areas (out of drama, singing and dance)– please give all 3 aspects a try for your audition even if it’s out of your comfort zone at the moment.
