Arsenal will be providing shuttles for students attending the Albuquerque audition event only. Students traveling to our Texas and Arizona camps must make their own travel arrangements.

Audition materials will soon be available to students who have registered for auditions and paid their audition fee. Audition materials and camp packets will be sent out as soon as they are available. If you’ve registered and paid your fee, all you have to do now is wait- we’ll send you everything via email when it’s ready! As you prepare for auditions, remember that we’re looking for students who not only move and play well, but also are able to adapt quickly to change and maintain a positive attitude throughout. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on audition announcements!
