Frequently Asked Questions
Can I double major with dance?
Yes, the dance major is designed for students to double major and our students are encouraged to make connections across their areas of study. Students should select dance as their first major to be eligible for arts scholarships, but a second major can be added after the first day of classes.
How big are your classes?
The average ratio for most studio classes is 15:1.
Why isn’t ballet a required course?
While most of our dance majors enroll in ballet each semester, we recognize that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all pathway for our students. Students looking to study ballet or take ballet to support other areas of their dance training can do so in our unique curriculum.
Do you have a dress code?
No, but we do ask that students wear clothing appropriate to the style of the class.
Do you have a dance team?
We do not have a team that performs at our athletic events, but we do have a pre-professional dance company.
If I am not a major can I still audition for the dance company?
You can, although it is unusual for students to be involved in the company without majoring or minoring in dance since the company requires enrollment in studio technique courses each semester.
Am I eligible for an arts scholarship if I declare dance as a major while I am a current student?
Unfortunately, no. Arts scholarships are awarded in the admissions process only.
