"Stretch your performance muscles during social distancing virtually with industry pros who will help keep you in shape and ready to hit the ground running when those audition requests come in! Whether you need a crackdown on songs or sides, or are simply gearing up for your college audition process...join us for an intensive that will absolutely UPGRADE your audition."
