Scholarship Audition | Placement Information

Dance-Scholarship-and-Technique-Placement-Audition-Form-2017-18 (Document)

All prospective dance majors must attend a Dance Scholarship and Technique Placement Audition before enrolling as a dance major. The audition will be used for faculty to place students in the appropriate technique class level, to advise students in their pursuit of a dance degree, and to assess students for the possibility of being awarded a talent-based scholarship. Those being considered for scholarship will participate in a brief interview with faculty following the audition. 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 danceinfo@brenau.edu for information). However, an audition in person is preferred.

The completed Dance-Scholarship-and-Technique-Placement-Audition-Form-2017-18 (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!
