Application Procedure

Fill out the GISPA Application Form and include:

  1. A short biography
  2. Resume and 2 references
  3. An artistic reference (your music, drama or dance teacher, choir conductor, a school or community theatre director, or someone else not related to you that can comment on your performing abilities).
  4. An academic and character reference. Someone qualified to comment on your academic and social achievements.

While the final application deadline is the second week of September, it is our preference to receive application packages and hold auditions by the end of June.

Wait…there’s more:

  1. Contact us to arrange a tour, observe classes or to meet GISPA’s inspired teachers and students or to discuss homestay arrangements.
  2. The audition process varies in each performing arts strand; arrange an audition time when you submit your application, or by contacting the instructor or coordinator:

Michelle Footz, Music

Sonia Langer, Dance

Jason Donaldson, Coordinator and Theatre
