Visual and Performing Arts: How to Apply and Audition/Submit Portfolio

How to Apply

All steps are required.

1. Complete the appropriate application: 


2. Schedule your portfolio review or audition

Auditions are held from fall to spring on campus and in select cities in the northeast. Portfolio reviews are held on campus. Applicants who are unable to attend an audition or portfolio review in person should use SlideRoom to submit a recorded audition or digital portfolio. To schedule a virtual portfolio review (via video conference), email Amanda Brady, assistant director of Admissions, abrady8@naz.edu.


3. Create your SlideRoom account (free) at least one week before your audition or portfolio review date. This is required if you're coming for an audition or portfolio review and if you're submitting your audition or portfolio virtually. For musical theatre and acting, see specific requirements below under Theatre.
