Dance at Slippery Rock University

Be Transformed: Become an SRU Dancer

SRU prepares dancers for their chosen profession and entrepreneurial role in society


At SRU, students will find a warm, welcoming, secure and disciplined environment in which to explore, learn and grow. All incoming first-year and transfer students, or currently enrolled students (seeking to add a minor or second major), must participate in a dance audition. The Department of Dance Auditions Flyer is available here.

Face to Face auditions include a combined class of ballet and contemporary dance techniques as well as a tour of campus. View these audition guidelines to see the audition requirements for the BA in Dance, the BFA in Dance, and the Dance Minor.

Virtual auditions include online submission of audition materials as well as interviews with faculty and current students.
