Placement in the program is by audition only. Students in this program comprise 

the competition teams that represent the school.

Interested in Auditions?

The audition process this year will be a bit different from previous years. Students looking to be accepted into the Performance Program must enroll in the class they would like to audition for. They will be assessed in that class during the first month of classes in September.

 

We know that social distancing may have prohibited students from training as intensely as they would have otherwise, and would like to give them a month to get back into the swing of things before we make any decisions on their acceptance to the Performance Program.

 

We suggest you enroll your child in the appropriate Performance Program class according to their age and ability.  From there, we will guide your child in the right direction.  We are here to help your child achieve their goals at WSPA. 

 

If you are new to WSPA, we encourage you to scroll through the different offerings in the Performance Program listed on this page.

If you have any questions or would like more guidance on which class your child should register for, please feel free to email us.
