Dance Day

Are you wondering if a dance major may be for you?  Dance Day is an opportunity each semester for prospective students to sample the WKU Dance Program and see what it's all about.  Participants will take a class with WKU dance faculty, meet with faculty to learn more about the curriculum, observe a Dance Company warm up class, and attend a mainstage dance concert. Dance Day does not replace the dance placement audition day required for students who have definitely chosen to pursue the B.A. in Dance.  Nor is it meant for the student with no dance experience.  But if you're somewhere between, wondering if the WKU Dance Program could be your new home, come give us a try.

Dance Day Spring 2020

Students should wear traditional dance attire  (leotard and tights) and should bring ballet slippers and jazz shoes. Participants will take an intermediate/advanced level ballet, jazz, or modern dance class.

The Fall Dance Day will begin November 24, 2019 at 11:30 am CST through the 2pm CST performance of WinterDance: Fairy Tales & Fables. The Spring Dance Day will begin May 3, 2020 at 11:30 am CST through the 3pm performance of Evening of Dance.
