EVALUATION STANDARDS

Considerations for Dance Auditions:

The Fei Tian dance audition focuses on a combination of dance styles and techniques and lasts approximately one hour. Students will be expected to perform movement combinations under the instruction of a judging panel. Students do not need to prepare a solo, and previous training is not required to be considered for the basic level class. Applicants will be evaluated on their potential for a career in dance including passion and interest, physique and body alignment, coordination and flexibility, rhythmic accuracy, ability to reproduce movement combinations, and respect for high moral character.

Considerations for Music Auditions:

The Fei Tian music audition focuses on a combination of solo performance, scales, and sight-reading and lasts approximately 30 minutes. Students will be expected to play by memory solos from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, or 20th Century periods. Students must bring one copy of their solo scores for the judging panel. Piano accompaniment is optional, but the school will provide an accompanist upon advance request. Students should be familiar with all clefs in common use for their instrument. Students will be asked to sight-read a selection of the panel’s choosing. Applicants will be evaluated on their potential for a career in music including passion and interest, fundamentals and posture, intonation and pitch recognition, musicality and sense of rhythm, and respect for high moral character.

Piano applicants will be expected to play by memory two or three solos from different periods (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, or 20th Century). They should also prepare major and minor scales, four octaves, and hands together. In addition, students will be asked to sight-read two selections.

The academic placement process will include a review of students’ GPA, transcripts, teacher references, and live conversational interview.
