Entrance in the Dance Major Programs is by audition only. Grades of C or better are required for all courses in the major. Students must be enrolled in modern dance and/or ballet technique to be eligible for participation in the departmental dance productions, including DANSCORE, Dance/Hartwell, Dance/Strasser, New Dancers Showcase, Graduation Dances and special works by guest artists and graduate students.
