Student Application

By beginning this process, you will be taking a major step towards making your collegiate, and ultimately your career, dreams come true. In addition, with each question answered you are moving closer to securing your invitation to participate in the Performers National Signing Day event in New York City.  Remember, you are competing against students just like you from all across America so you will want to be thorough in answering each question on your application.


Your performance video is of prime importance, and will, in fact, be the first audition component that the review panel will score. So, you will want to make sure that you are recording exactly what is outlined in Audition Requirements.  You are also encouraged to review Audition Tech Tips to make sure your video audition is at the standard that will give a positive reflection of your performance ability.


As you work through the process of completing your application and uploading an audition performance video, be diligent and committed to completing the process.  You are here because of your teacher’s strong belief in you and their recommendation.  Give it all you’ve got.
