KSU Dance Major Audition Application

We invite you to audition with us! We hold both in-person auditions and accept video audition submissions on a rolling basis. Our in-person auditions are directly followed by an info session and Q&A with our faculty and staff. 

Important: If you are not currently a student at Kennesaw State University, you must begin your application for university admission before you apply to the Department of Dance. It is not essential that you be fully admitted to the University at the time of the audition, however, you will need your KSU ID number and Net ID generated by the university admission application to complete the dance audition registration form below. If you have already submitted your KSU application, here are the instructions for locating your KSU ID and Net ID.

Audition Information

  • We recommend that women wear black leotards and tights, and that men wear all black dance attire. Please wear flat ballet shoes during the ballet portion of the audition. Please ensure hair is pulled back and neatly secured, and please refrain from wearing jewelry.

    All students entering the program must demonstrate technical and artistic aptitude capable of successfully completing the program of study.

    Please see below for details regarding in-person auditions and video submissions.

  • Please register for an in-person audition using the Dance Major Audition Application. We partner with Slideroom to host our applications. Detailed information will be provided a week before the audition.

    The audition process will consist of a 45-minute ballet barre, followed by a modern combination.

    All students and parents/caregivers are invited to join the dance faculty and current KSU students for a Q&A session directly following the audition. 

    Students will be notified about acceptance into the program within a week following the audition.   

  • Please read all directions before you begin your video application to audition for the Department of Dance. We partner with Slideroom to host our applications. 

    In order to ensure that we can accurately evaluate technical proficiency and personal potential, you will be asked to learn BOTH a condensed class in ballet technique and contemporary combinations through video links:

    Ballet Technique Combination

    Contemporary Combination

    You will then record your performance of both the ballet and contemporary material, upload it as a single file to YouTube or Vimeo and include in your Dance Major Audition Application via Slideroom. You also have the option to upload the media directly in the Slideroom platform.

    Students will receive their auditions results within 2-3 weeks after submitting a video audition.

    Note: Please learn all the material before you begin recording.
