The Florida Combined Auditions are BACK at the Patel Conservatory in Tampa

January 22-23, 2022

In partnership with The Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center in Tampa, The College Audition is excited to again offer this opportunity for students to have live, final college auditions right here in Florida!

There is no registration or fee to attend these auditions! Just like the National Unified Auditions in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, students will need to apply to each individual school and set up an audition appointment in advance to attend the auditions. Time permitting, if a school has room on their schedule, they will take walk-in audition appointments as well. We suggest bringing extra headshots and resumes in case you find a walk-in audition while you’re there.

While each school will run their own auditions, and have their own audition requirements, there will be a combined dance audition each day at 4:00PM. Students are only required to attend ONE of those dance auditions. The presence of an accompanist at the auditions is determined by each school as well. Please contact them with questions about auditions.
