Dance Audition Information

We are excited to hear of your interest in our dance program! Each year, we welcome an eclectic group of aspiring artists who have goals of performing, teaching, and choreographing. It is highly recommended that prospective students apply to the university before auditioning for the dance program.

An audition is required for prospective Bachelor of Fine Arts candidates.

Bachelor of Arts candidates are also encouraged to attend.

It is the Dance Program's preference that students audition as early in the season as possible. Submit audition materials at least two weeks prior to the desired audition date.

The following guidelines are required for prospective BFA candidates but are encouraged for BA candidates. Students are encouraged to take two technique classes, chosen from either ballet, contemporary, jazz, or tap, taught by Lindenwood Dance Faculty. The audition will be used to place prospective students in appropriate technique levels and to determine eligibility for our selective Fine and Performing Arts grants.

In addition to technique classes, students will also share a one-minute solo in a genre of dance of their choice and complete an interview with dance faculty. Depending on scheduling, prospective students should expect the audition to take 2-3 hours, on a weekday, to complete.

Submitting the Student Information below will automatically initiate a conversation about scheduling your audition day. If you have any additional questions about our degree offerings, please contact Tricia Zweier.
