Scholarship Audition | Placement Information

Dance-Program-Placement-and-Scholarship-Audition-Form-2015.16 (Document)

All students must take a placement class prior to enrolling in a dance technique class above the 100 level. Students entering as dance majors may audition for a dance scholarship. Recipients of dance scholarships will receive a contract of expectations including the expectation to register for technique and repertoire classes every semester. Participation in faculty and guest choreography and/or as a company member of the Gainesville Ballet Company is required. Dance scholarships are part of the total aid package and will be announced by the Office of Financial Aid.

Auditions include a ballet technique class, modern dance and jazz dance center combinations, and an improvisation problem. An interview is part of the audition process. Interviews are held after the audition class. If the student is unable to attend any of the audition dates, it is possible to audition by video (email for information). However, an audition in person is preferred.

The completed Dance-Program-Placement-and-Scholarship-Audition-Form-2015.16 (Document) and a full-body photo of the applicant in dance clothing performing first arabesque should be submitted prior to the audition. The photo is for the purpose of audition identification only; please do not use a performance picture in costume or make-up.    

We strongly encourage you to visit the campus before making a final college decision. Schedule a tour to see the campus, visit with an Admissions Specialist, meet a dance faculty member, talk with a current dance major, and find a home for your next extraordinary experience!
