We feel that the audition process is important for several reasons. First, we want to make sure that we reserve this opportunity for serious, motivated young people. Second, we want to make sure that there is some level of talent and training so that our students are able to take advantage of the opportunity. Finally, for anyone serious about this business, auditions are an important part of what it takes to be successful and should always be part of the program.

VIDEO AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
There are 5 components to a video audition.
Prepare your You-tube video that is no longer then 2 minutes in length. Please introduce yourself, tell us in 30 seconds or less why you want to attend Destination Broadway®, what you expect to learn from the opportunity, and then sing an age appropriate song of your choice for the remainder of the time. No background vocals permitted. NO ACAPELLA AUDITIONS. PLEASE USE AN ACCOMPANIST. Again, this should NOT be a professionally created, enhanced video. Videos should be posted on www.youtube.com. Remember, we want to see YOU, not the result of a professionally produced video.
Posting your video to www.youtube.com:
- Go to www.youtube.com
- Create an account by clicking "create account" in upper right corner.
- Upload your short audition video.
- On Right side set video as "Unlisted" (anyone with the link can view).
- Below "Uploading" Bar a link will appear in a small box.
- Copy and paste this link into your email to email@example.com. Be sure to include additional items outlined below.

Submit a recommendation from a teacher, dance instructor, vocal coach or other professional involved in the performing arts, by clicking the button below. They can email the completed recommendation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prepare a headshot of yourself. Make sure your name appears on the photo! This requirement is intended to be EASY and INEXPENSIVE. A headshot is exactly that…a headshot. Spending money for a professional photo is not necessary. A digital camera photo will be fine.
Submit and finalize audition by emailing your "Audition Form", "Headshot" and "Youtube link" to email@example.com.
