Solo Audition and Interview:
Present a one-minute solo before the faculty (no other students or observers will be in the room). The solo can be your own choreography, someone else’s choreography that you have previously danced, or material from technique class. If you choose to use music, please bring a device that can connect to a standard 3mm auxiliary cord. Immediately prior doing the solo, there is a brief interview with the dance faculty.
To “pass” the audition, and be accepted as a Dance major or pre-major, you must demonstrate competency in at least one of the two concentrations of the major: modern or flamenco. Competency in ballet and improvisation are also weighed/considered.
