My friend's dd wants to DSA to RIJC through Dance. What are the pre-requisites and what's the audition process like? Are academic qualifications important as well?

Full info can be found on the sch's website itself. The updated version for this year's DSA will normally be up in April/may. I didn't audition for RI but normally some sch will require students to perform an ORIGINAL solo choreo of about 1 -2 mins infront of the resident choreographer, teacher in charge and the chairperson of the dance society. Audition process is about an hour, students will be required to learn a set of choreo from the chairperson and perform it in maybe a group of about 5 students infront of them. The process is not easy, for top JCs maybe as many as 40 people will go down for the audition. Solo choreo will either be before or after the set choreo. Academics is equally important, for top JCs L1R5 should not exceed 20 points

I assume the students would have to take GAT as well?

Is GAT an admission test? If it is then I don't think so.

I don't think JC DSA has GAT. I've never heard about it from my friends who DSAed via sports and academics.

because if the student is deemed academically unfit for the sch, the sch will reject the student even if the student is good at what he/she does. that's what happened to me unfortunately haha

They would base this on the student's secondary school exam results?

So which JC did you DSA into eventually?

I don't think so? I know of a DSA sports person who has L1R5 of nearly 30 but was accepted by RI. No idea how she did for O levels though, since requirement is 20.
