Admission & Audition
The Department of Dance does NOT require an audition for entry into the B.A. program. Incoming or transfer students may declare a dance major when they apply or enroll. At the end of the sophomore year, students will undergo a “sophomore review,” an evaluation of their academic progress and artistic growth within the program. If a student is in good standing at the end of his or her sophomore year, he or she may continue in the BA program. If a student transfers into our program after the sophomore year, he or she will be evaluated at the end of the first year of attendance.
