Curriculum and Production
The Dance Minor offers dancers the opportunity to continue dancing at an advanced level throughout their college careers while pursuing other studies.
Dance classes are structured to allow students to dance every day, in a sequence which offers two days of ballet, one day of modern, one day of jazz, and one day of tap or musical theatre styles each week. Each technique is offered at four different levels on each day, so that students can be placed appropriately. Two choreography classes are offered and all dance minors are encouraged to choreograph pieces for dance workshops and the annual dance concert. All dance classes are taught by specialists in each technique, many of whom operate their own studios or teach at Ballet Met, the professional ballet company in Columbus. Dance Minors also are encouraged to audition for musicals that need dancers.
All students interested in applying for a Minor in Dance must schedule an audition. Admission to the program is by invitation only and the number of available places is limited.
Talent awards are available to those admitted in the Dance Minor and are competitive, ranging from $500 to $2,000 per year.
To arrange for an audition, contact Matt Wolfe via email, or call 614-823-1657. We will respond to your request with a written confirmation of your appointment and more detailed information about the dance audition and interview.
Dance Auditions are held on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the months of February and March.
