There is no audition to declare a Dance major. At the start of the fall semester the department holds a placement class to determine enrollment in the appropriate level of technique. Dance majors are expected to enter with and maintain adequate technical proficiency to progress through the curriculum, and must maintain at least a C average for classes to count towards the Dance major.
