Undergraduate applicants must submit an undergraduate application to the University of Oklahoma. An audition at one of the two audition dates offered by the School of Dance is also required.
Graduate applicants must submit a graduate application to the University of Oklahoma and submit a graduate placement application, a resume, a video containing a personal performance as well as their choreography and three recommendations to the School of Dance. An audition and interview will be scheduled following graduate faculty review of the video and application materials.
We offer highly competitive graduate fellowships and assistantships, including tuition remission and a stipend. For more information please contact Graduate Liason Jeremy Lindberg at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the School of Dance.
Undergraduate auditions will take place on October 12, 2015, and January 30, 2016. In order to reserve a space at the audition, you must contact the School of Dance at 405-325-4051 or at email@example.com.
Attire for the ballet audition is a black leotard, pink tights and ballet slippers and pointe shoes for women. Men are to wear a white T-shirt, black tights and black ballet shoes or white ballet shoes with white socks. Attire for the modern audition is either a footless black unitard or a black leotard and footless black tights. Hair must be secured off the face and neck for both auditions. Each student must provide a full-length photo in dancewear at the time of the audition.
The ballet audition will consist of a technique class with pointe and men's work. The modern dance audition will also consist of a technique class. Only students auditioning for admission as a modern dance major must also provide a DVD of a brief solo to be reviewed by the faculty. After the audition, faculty members will be available to answer questions from parents and prospective students.
