Track H – Professional Artists

*NEW FOR THE 2019/2020 SCHOOL YEAR!
With the new enrollment season starting in January, Encore is setting up exactly how students will track their enrollment for the next school year.  New students will no longer be required to complete an assessment or audition to join the beginning “A” track enrollment.  All students that are not placed in a conservatory will automatically be placed in TRACK A Enrollment.
TRACK H ENROLLMENT is what is covered on this page.

Students that are active in the conservatory programs within Encore and have achieved an average level of III or IV within the conservatory programs might be scouted for Track H enrollment.  Track H is the most intense form of arts training available within the Encore organization.  Infrequently, some programs may ask for a live audition, resume, bio, and interview.  This is a newer set of programs with the pilot program starting in the 18/19 school year.  While additional Track H opportunities will come over the next four years, for the 19/20 school year, enrollment in Track H is available for the following conservatories:

  1. Dance
  2. Cirque Acrobatics
  3. Vocal Music
  4. Instrumental Music

If you are a student that has extensive expertise within your arts conservatory and you are interested in TRACK H enrollment, you will be required to complete at least one full year of conservatory enrollment within the Encore campuses, take part in at least one team during the course of the school year, take part in at least one production over the course of the school year, AND have either a scout invitation OR successful audition.  About 5% of the student population will be invited to be a part of Track H enrollment.
