Dance Program Auditions 

Dance program students in performance

In order to become a Dance Major, a dancer must complete one of our Dance Entrance Auditions.  We are planning to conduct our Dance Major Entrance Auditions in person on campus.  If the COVID -19 Restrictions change to make this impossible we will shift to an on-line version. 

Remember that once you have applied the university you will need to set up your portal account. Many important communications will be coming to you and that is the university’s only method used. They will be contacting you through your portal, please check in there regularly.
