There is no formal audition to be accepted into the Department of Dance. Students who are accepted into UNLV can declare a dance major and will be placed in the Bachelor of Arts degree curriculum. The first year curriculum of all degree tracks is the same.
Acceptance into the BFA in Performance and Choreography is by audition. Students interested in the Performance and Choreography degree track may audition prior to their first semester, or wait to audition until after their first semester. The attire for the audition consists of basic dance clothing and ballet shoes, jazz shoes, or non-slippery socks. The choreography must be the student’s own work. It can be a short solo, no more than two minutes long. Please visit our events page to confirm dates and times of BFA auditions
Please note that it is expected that after the first year of curriculum, that students are actively enrolled in either the BFA or BA Production track. If a student does not pass the BFA audition after the first year, graduation may be delayed.
Candidates for the BFA degree will undergo rigorous scrutiny in compliance with professional expectations in academic and creative accomplishments. Students are required to complete all required courses in their area of concentration.
