Before you begin the online application, please read these guidelines in their entirety.
Please complete an application form for EACH performance you wish to enter in the virtual showcase. Answers cannot be edited once you have submitted this form, however you are able to save a draft prior to submitting, so please review your answers prior to submission.

  • A panel of NYC arts educators will adjudicate the submissions.
  • Individual expressiveness and technical proficiency will be considered during the selection process.
