Dance Minor

Curriculum and Production

The Dance Minor offers students the opportunity to continue advanced level training throughout their college careers, while pursuing their chosen major.

Dance classes are structured to allow students to dance every day.  We offer instruction in ballet, tap, modern, jazz, and musical theatre.  Students are placed in the appropriate level based on experience and technique within each discipline.  All dance classes are taught by our experienced dance faculty team. 

In addition to taking technique classes, two choreography classes and one class in dance history are required for the Dance Minor.  Pieces done in the Advanced Choreography class are presented in dance workshops and are considered for inclusion in the annual dance concert.  All dance minors are required to audition for the annual dance concert, and are also encouraged to audition for dance roles in mainstage musicals.  Extraordinarily talented and discplined students have been given the opportunity to choreograph musicals.

To Apply

Students interested in applying for a Minor in Dance must schedule an audition. Admission to the program is by invitation only.  

Talent awards are available to those admitted, ranging from $500 to $2,000 per year.  All students who audition, whether on campus or online, will be considered for talent awards.

To schedule an audition, contact Matt Wolfe via email, or call 614-823-1657. You will receive an electronic confirmation of your appointment and more detailed information about the dance audition and interview.  Applicants can arrange a class visit with their intended major, a campus tour, an overnight experience or come to the dance audition only. Auditions will be held on Tuesdays from 8am - 10:30am throughout the school year.  Students who are unable to audition on campus, may submit a digital audition via getacceptd.com.
