Placement for Non-Majors

Many courses offered by the dance program count towards core curriculum credit in Artistic Knowledge and Experience as well as the area of Engaged Learning. 

Auditions are not required for dance minors or for students wanting to take Level I dance classes.

All dancers enrolling in dance courses Level II or above should attend the Dance Placement & New Student Orientation, usually held prior to the start of each semester. This is an opportunity for all incoming dancers to meet faculty, learn about course offerings and the dance minor or major, and most importantly, to ensure that they are correctly placed in the technique level. Students should come with their course schedules and appropriate dance clothes and shoes.

There will not be a Dance Placement & Orientation Session for the Spring 2020 semester.
