Audition Now For The Long Island High School For The Arts
Over the past four decades, Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) has been a home and training ground for talented young artists who are actively and passionately exploring and pursuing careers in the visual and performing arts.
Part of the public school system, LIHSA is located at a state-of-the-art facility in Syosset where talented teens are immersed in the arts for half of their school day. Aspiring dancers, filmmakers, musicians, actors, theatre technicians and visual artists receive professional-level training in their respective crafts. Through a variety of partnerships, master classes are held in all areas. The faculty of practicing professional artists prepares students for auditions and helps with portfolio selections as well as applying for specialized awards and honors.
High school students from Nassau and Suffolk counties with dreams of a career in the arts are encouraged to audition for the Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA).
Auditions are being held now through June. Acceptance is based on talent, enthusiasm, motivation and potential. Interested students entering grades 9-12 can get applications and audition requirements from their guidance counselors, at www.nassauboces.org/lihsa or by calling the school directly at 516-622-5678.
