Dance Audition Info

K-State Dance welcomes all students to engage in our dance programs. Auditions are not required for acceptance into our program. However, auditions are required for scholarships available to students in the secondary major in Dance and the Human Experience. Please join us for Dance Day where you can meet faculty and students, see our facilities, participate in classes, and audition for scholarships.

Dance Concert Auditions

Each semester, the Dance Program features a mainstage concert of faculty and guest artist choreography in jazz, modern, and tap styles. Auditions are typically held the first Saturday morning after classes begin in the Fall semester for Winter Dance Concert, and on the last Saturday morning before exams in the Fall semester for the Spring Dance Concert. All K-State students are eligible to audition. Further information is available HERE
