What if I want to audition for multiple programs on VAPA Day?
 
Although we encourage you to work towards mastery in one area, you may audition for multiple programs.  You can do this by scheduling non-conflicting auditions times
 
For example, you want to try Choral Music and Dance.  Sign up for the Choral Masterclass at 9:20 and also sign up for the 10:30 Dance Session.  
 
Another example: You would like to audition for Acting and Instrumental Music.  Make sure you select audition times that are at significantly different times.  To be safe, try to schedule at least one hour in between audition time slots. 
See you on VAPA Day!
