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. Admitted students may audition for scholarship consideration.

To be considered for an audition, students are required to submit an Early Action (non-binding entrance plan) application for admission by December 1, 2018. In addition, a complete Dance Scholarship Application must be submitted by January 15, 2019.

Auditions for the 2018/2019 academic year will take place on February 24, 2019.  The audition offers admitted students the opportunity to observe our program and for our faculty to evaluate students for scholarship consideration.  NOTE:  Students will be engaging in three technique classes.  We do not expect proficiency in each genre.
