Are you a current 8 - 11th grade student in Frederick, Loudoun, or Warren Counties or Winchester City? Good, you are eligible to apply. Keep reading.
The application and audition processes are consolidated together into one online form rather than separating the application from the audition.
There are no in-person auditions. All auditions will be video submissions.
Students will create unlisted YouTube videos. They are not searchable and can only be viewed by people with the link. Students will include the link on the online application form.
Please read and follow the directions on this page carefully.
1. Review the audition requirements for your division. Practice the requirements until you are confident and prepare thoughtful answers to the interview questions. Practice answering the questions out loud.
2. Create an unlisted YouTube audition video following the requirements on the audition page.
3. Complete the online application form. The application has a space to link your audition video and your artist portfolio document (for visual artists only). Due February 28.
4. An online teacher recommendation is required. Choose a teacher that is familiar with your work. Notify the teacher that you are applying for PAVAN. Ask them to complete a recommendation for you. You will provide the name an email address of the teacher on the application form. PAVAN will send the teacher a link to the online form. Recommendations are due March 15.
