Due to COVID-19, and the temporary closure of the 92nd Street Y, we have to cancel the previously scheduled YDC audition. We will conduct auditions digitally, and will contact you directly to explain the digital application process. In the meantime, fill out your online application and begin preparing a SOLO STUDY for your audition. See instructions below. You can create this study in your home - you don't need a lot of space or music, just you!
