Stephens Dance Auditions: Nov. 8 & Nov. 15
Scholarships* available for up to $5,000 a year!
The Stephens College School of Performing Arts is holding Dance Auditions for incoming and prospective students on Friday, Nov. 8 and Nov. 15, 2013. Dance Auditions are for those who intend to major or minor in dance at Stephens College or who are seeking admission to our Professional Conservatory Training Program.
Stephens' unique 3-year/2-summer B.F.A. in Dance program allows you to enter the dance world earlier. You'll study modern, ballet, musical theatre and choreography under the guidance of experienced faculty and internationally known guest artists. Stephens PCTP is a 2-year, 2-summer certificate program emphasizing performance-based studio work.
During the events, prospective students can audition for the B.F.A. program or PCTP and learn about scholarship opportunities, meet current students and faculty, tour campus and attend a dance class and speak with admissions staff.
To register for your audition, call Ada Gallup at (800) 876-7207 or email [email protected].
Hope to see you soon!
*Scholarships are available only to students seeking a B.F.A. in Dance.
Once registered, you will be sent an Audition Package to complete.
Each Audition Package should include:
- A full body photo of yourself wearing a leotard, tights, dance shoes or barefoot, in a standing pose.
- A resume form of dance experience, available once you have registered for the audition.
- A writing sample, no more than one typed double-spaced page, describing why you like to dance and your career goals.
- Two Teacher Evaluation forms mailed in sealed envelopes. If you only have one teacher, one form will suffice.
Please bring all of your materials to the audition. You are responsible for having your teacher evaluations mailed in advance by your dance instructor or bringing them to the audition in sealed envelopes.
