Auditions give us a chance to see you firsthand, but they also give you a chance to check us out, too. Talk with our faculty. See how it feels to be a dance student at Florida Southern College.
If you are interested in pursuing a Dance Studies or Dance Performance & Choreography major/minor an audition is required.
This audition is for students who have already been accepted academically into Florida Southern College and who intend to major/minor in Dance Studies or Dance Performance & Choreography.
The audition process will consist of ballet and modern dance technique, as well as improvisational movement. Students auditioning for one of the dance majors should also prepare a short solo of 90 seconds or less. The solo may be student choreography or a part of work choreographed by someone else.
Students must bring a letter of recommendation from a current or past dance instructor and a self-photo (headshot, dance photo, or enlarged snapshot) for identification purposes.
Appropriate attire for the audition includes correct dancewear (leotard/tights) and footwear (ballet slippers and bare feet). Students may be asked to do pointe work at the discretion of the instructor.
