Conservatory Workshop/Reviews provide applicants an opportunity to demonstrate their art form and receive helpful feedback from our conservatory staff. Applicants should carefully examine the specific Conservatory Workshop/Review Guidelines to prepare for their Conservatory Workshop/Review. If the guidelines specify that materials will be submitted digitally, those materials will need to be included when the application is submitted on or before February 5, 2022. No student will be able to select a conservatory for enrollment if they have not completed ALL aspects of the Workshop/Review Guidelines for that conservatory.
Applicants will be able to schedule their own appointments to attend Conservatory Workshop/Review, should there be an in-person or virtual component. All in-person components of Conservatory Workshop/Reviews for the upcoming school year will be conducted in January and February.
Once an appointment is scheduled, there can be no changes to the scheduled date or time.
CSArts-SGV does not condition its admissions on performance ability except in the areas of music and dance. These conservatories do not have an entry level of instruction, thus spaces are limited. An applicant’s feedback will not impact their inclusion in the enrollment lottery, but may impact the level a student is placed in upon being offered enrollment, depending on the conservatory. Upon being offered enrollment in the school, students' artistic skills may be further assessed in order to determine level, and in some cases that assessment may result in placement in alternate programs or pathways within their conservatory in order to best suit their interests and skills.
We encourage all applicants to participate in workshops/reviews for two different conservatories, in order to best prepare themselves to select a conservatory that would be a good fit for them. We strongly recommend that all applicants who have selected the Instrumental Music Conservatory, the Commercial Dance Conservatory, or the Ballet & Contemporary Dance Conservatory also participate in a workshop/review for at least one other conservatory. These conservatories do not have an entry level of instruction, thus spaces are limited.
