Dance Auditions

Your audition should include two short dance pieces, each no more than 1.5 - 2 minutes in length, representing a range of styles. Please ensure that the videos are of you only and not you performing in a group piece.

If you present your work on campus, faculty members are likely to provide feedback and direction to re-work portions of your presentation. If your performance requires music, please bring your own CD. Schedule your on-campus audition at

If you submit your work electronically, a recorded dance audition should follow the guidelines specified above and include oral responses to the following questions:

  • How long have you been studying dance?
  • What forms/dance styles have you studied?
  • Who choreographed the work you are auditioning?
  • How do you see dance fitting into your college experience?
  • Our dance minor is a well-rounded program in that our course work includes: dance technique, dance history, dance theory, improvisation, anatomy, choreography & production. Please describe any experience you have had in any of these fields of dance. What would you be interested in learning more about at the college level?

Videos containing segments of recent performances will not be considered.

Submission Deadlines
Auditions are due by the same deadline as your application for admission (see for specific deadlines).

Electronic Submission of Auditions
Portfolios can be submitted electronically through the Portfolio section on your AppTracker, which will be available within about 48 hours of submitting your application for admission—we'll send you an email with a link to create a password and access your AppTracker.
