Event Details

Audition registration will begin at 9:00 am in the lobby of the Performing Arts wing of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building (HSSB). The audition will begin promptly at 10:00 am. Students attending the audition will have the opportunity to meet faculty, students and advisors.

The audition should be viewed as a challenging but positive experience, and students should regard it as a learning experience. The format of the audition is similar to that of a class, and will accommodate:
  • Technique class in contemporary dance
  • Technique class in ballet
  • For transfer students and UCSB students desiring to enter the program at the junior level, please present a choreographic study of approximately one-minute. This work must be choreographed by the candidate and although it is a very short format, the dance should demonstrate the candidate's compostional potential with attention paid to innovative and authentic movement vocabulary, spatial cosideration, and a well concieved dramatic arc from beginning to end. The transfer audition will include assessment of technique in contemporary and ballet, but will also include improvisation and a short interview in additon to seeing your solo.
Please wear appropriate dance clothing. No loose clothing; leotards, tights (easily convertible to bare feet) and ballet slippers.

Auditions for the Dance program and applying to the University are separate processes. Students should contact the Office of Admissions for more information about University application materials and deadlines. Acceptance by audition to the Dance program does not guarentee acceptance to the University. Students must meet the Office of Admissions requirements for University acceptance consideration.
