Program Placement Auditions
The University of Idaho Dance Program requires placement auditions for acceptance. Students will be evaluated by the dance faculty on the basis of previous training, technical prowess, performance presence, alignment, maturity of movement, and potential. To prepare, you should receive ballet and modern dance training with some classes in jazz.
Students meeting our program standards will be granted entrance into the program under a four-year plan. Students who do not meet program standards upon entrance will be accepted under conditional status. These students are still allowed to take classes in the dance curriculum, but will be re-evaluated the following year for improvement and potential.
Dance minors do not need to audition for the minor. However, all intermediate and advanced level technique classes in ballet and modern dance require instructor permission. A placement class will take place annually.
