Dance Program Auditions

Dance Audition Days

Strong dancers are encouraged to audition during one of our four scheduled Audition Days. Auditioners take a ballet class and a modern class, then present a short solo in their strongest dance form. Students and their families also have the opportunity to tour the campus and the Theatre & Dance facilities, have lunch with current dance students, participate in information sessions with admissions staff and dance faculty, and see a theatre or dance performance.

Dance Audition Days for 2014-2015:
Friday, Oct. 17, 2014
Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014
Friday, Feb. 6, 2015
Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015

More information about Dance Audition Days:

  • The ballet class is not en pointe.
  • Your solo can be in any dance style and does not need to be self-choreographed.
  • Music for your solo can be on iPod, CD, or cassette. The solo should be one to two minutes in length, and it is fine to stop dancing before the music stops.
  • Standard dance attire should be worn for the class and solo.
  • We will send a letter about your dance audition to the Admissions Office. A good audition will positively influence your admission.
  • Based on your audition, you may be awarded a Talent Scholarship of up to $4,000 per year.
  • If you are not available during one of our scheduled Audition Days and would still like to audition, please contact Karen Dearborn at dearborn@muhlenberg.edu.
