Dance Auditions


To pursue the B.A. in dance at Salve Regina, students must apply and be accepted to the University, and also audition for and be admitted to the dance program. Students who wish to minor in dance are welcome to audition, although it is not required.

Current students who wish to pursue the B.A. in dance should contact department chair Lindsay Guarino to gain approval and/or arrange an audition.

Requirements for Prospective Students

Students who are applying for fall admission complete a two-step application process.

Step 1: Apply to Salve Regina

Step 2: Apply to the Dance Program

Once your application to Salve Regina has been submitted, you will receive a login for your student status page, where you can complete the audition form and upload your pre-recorded video. You will be notified of your acceptance to the dance program at the time of admission. Visual and performing arts scholarship recipients will also be notified of their awards at the time of admission.
