After the audition everyone will get a recommendation which means you are admitted to the course or if we feel too much basic skills are lacking an advise to register for specific classes before the start of the course.
So we are also auditioning for you, this session is meant to see if teaching is something for you and if our method resonates with you. It is not So You Think were you might get 3 crossed and public humiliation, see it more that we see if there is a match between you and us
