Dance Auditions

Present two short dance pieces representing a range of styles.

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.

If you submit your work via mail or electronically, a recorded dance audition should follow the guidelines specified above and include oral responses to the following questions/prompts: 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. Do you have any experience 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).

File Sizes and Types
We support media files as large as 5GB, but please be advised that larger files will take longer to upload from your Internet connection and may stall if you are on a wireless connection or one that cannot sustain a connection for the necessary period of time. We support the following file formats:

  • Video: .avi, .flv, .m1v, .m2v, .m4v, .mkv, .mov, .mpeg, .mpg, .mp4, .webm, .wmv

Candidates are notified of their scholarship awards at the time of admission.

General Scholarship Guidelines
Writing and visual and performing arts scholarships are renewable annually as long as recipients remain in good academic standing. Scholarships must be applied toward the cost of tuition and the combination of Knox scholarships and grants and federal and state grants cannot exceed the cost of tuition. Scholarship recipients often qualify for additional need-based financial assistance, including grants, work-study programs, and loans.
