The application period for 2020-2021 enrollment opens October 1, 2019.

IMPORTANT: Integrity is required for a successful DASH audition. Work presented in sketchbooks and portfolios must be recent and original, prepared by the applicant only and not by any other person. Portfolios will be compared with audition day drawings. If work is judged by the experienced DASH art teachers as inconsistent (having been completed by more than one artist's hand), the applicant may be disqualified.
