Dance Placement & Auditions


The Dance Program is very excited about the varied curriculum and many opportunities that it will be able to offer you should you choose Goucher College. Whether a dance major or not, all admitted students may take any dance course appropriate for their level.

To be considered for an audition, first-year students are required to submit their application for admission and required supporting documents, along with a Dance Scholarship Application, by January 15, 2020.

Auditions for the 2019/2020 academic year will take place on February 23, 2020. The audition offers selected first-year students the opportunity to observe our program and for our faculty to evaluate students for scholarship consideration. NOTE: First-year students will be engaging in three technique classes. We do not expect proficiency in each genre.
