The Jeanine Larson Dobbins Conservatory of Theatre and Dance invites interested high school freshman, sophomores, juniors and graduating senior students to participate in Dance Day on Saturday, November 21, 2020. This is an opportunity for high school students to experience dance in a college environment. They will be exposed to a day devoted to dance where they will experience new movement and ideas, meet new people, witness creativity and learn why dance is a vital part of any education. We look forward to meeting and working with you during Dance Day!
Due to COVID-19, space will be limited for in-person attendees. Early registration is encouraged for students wanting to participate on campus. A virtual option is available for students who are unable to attend the live event. **A minimum of 10 students is required for the virtual option to occur.**
Classes begin at 10am at the SEMO River Campus and are taught by the Conservatory of Theatre and Dance's professional dance faculty. You will have the opportunity to tour the River Campus, and speak with faculty and students. Attendees will also receive two complimentary tickets to the Fall for Dance 2020 concert at 7:30pm. Please call ahead prior to Dance Day to the box office at (573) 651-2265 to reserve your complimentary tickets.
You are invited to attend the Conservatory BFA Dance Program Admission & Scholarship Auditions at 2pm.
Program Admission/Scholarship auditions consist of one dance solo of the student's choosing; 90 seconds or less. The solo should show the dancer as a performer and should also show the dancer's personal style and strengths. Dancers must provide a CD recording or Ipod/Iphone containing ONLY the accompaniment for the solo. It is strongly suggested that you apply to the University prior to the audition.
