INFO SESSIONS  are free and open to students, teachers, parents, and any other advocates for young artists.  In this presentation and Q&A session, you’ll learn about the GSA summer program, the ins and outs of the application/auditions/review process, alumni benefits, and anything else you want to cover in the Q&A session.  

Registration is not required to attend.

Ways You Can Attend:

  • Come in person to a session near you (Sites listed above)
  • Request a virtual session with a representative from GSA Headquarters customized for your classroom. Request An Info Session Now!
  • Tune in to a live open virtual session (Dates listed above)
  • Watch a virtual info session on-demand at any time (COMING SOON!)


And of course, you can contact GSA with questions at gsainfo@kentuckycenter.org or 502.566.5192.

PREP WORKSHOPS  focus on providing feedback to students on their Preliminary Round Application audition/portfolio materials. Students spend a morning in a group led by a teaching artist, receiving feedback on their prepared materials and observing while other students receive feedback. Students are then encouraged to stay for an info session later in the day.

Participation in a Prep Workshop does not affect the odds of a student's application being forwarded on to Final Round nor a student’s chance of being accepted into the GSA Summer Program, but it can help a student be more prepared for both. 

Students MUST pre-register and pay $10 to attend a prep workshop.

Parents, teachers, counselors and other friends of GSA do not pay a registration fee but are welcome to attend as well.  Educators who participate in a GSA prep workshop info sessions may be eligible for EILA or professional development credit hours.

Registration for Prep Workshops will launch in October along with the Preliminary Round Application!
