WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?


Our Video Audition process consists of 2 essential parts- a written cover letter and a video audition. We strive to provide students with life-skills that will help them book jobs in their future dance careers! It is not only about the audition, it is about the presentation and the professional look!


The EPA audition process is meant to identify a future PREP & C member's  strengths, weaknesses, and their desire and genuine passion to join the program. At EPA, we value a genuine desire to learn, versatility, and style, and we wish to see that in our audition! Show your personality and your professionalism!


The video process is divided into 3 stages: INTRODUCTION/AUDITION VIDEO/CLOSING STATEMENT. Below you will find a description of what we are looking for.
