All perspective dance majors enter the UA Dance Program on a provisional basis and technique class placement is determined by audition. At the end of the freshman year, students successfully passing the Freshman Jury will be admitted into the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences as B.A. in Dance majors. Students interested in pursuing a B.F.A. in Dance degree must successfully pass a B.F.A. audition at the end of the sophomore year.
Auditions for placement in the UA Dance Program consist of group classes in ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, and tap. The next auditions are November 23, 2013, and April 5, 2014.
