Q: Is a placement audition required to be a part of the dance program?

A: Absolutely, our Dance Basics class (non-major) is for absolute beginners or dancers who have had no formal training.



Q: Are there any scholarships available?
 
A: Yes, each year we award several dance scholarships to students based on financial need, talent, service, and academics. Students can find the scholarship information on the Dance Program Information link.

A: No way... We have students between ages 17- 70 and of all size, shapes and colors.



Q: Can I try a class out to see if it is what I am looking for?
