B.S. to B.F.A. Transfer

The dance faculty of the Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance may invite selected freshman dance majors in the BS program to apply and re-audition for admittance into the BFA program in dance. ONLY those students selected to re-apply by the dance faculty and invited by the Director of Dance may do so.

BS students that have been formally invited to apply to the BFA program, must complete and submit the following in the first semester of their freshman year:

  1. BFA Professional Goals Statement: Two-page statement of professional goals and career aspirations, as well as evidence of BFA caliber technique, performance, and academic accomplishments. If you have any deficiencies, for example, a grade of B or lower in technique or choreography classes (B+ is required for all BFA students), please address this issue in your statement.
  2. Current Transcription: Copies, unofficial from Pipeline.
  3. Choreograph and perform a three-minute solo: record and submit your solo on DVD or provide URL.

Dance faculty will observe invited students in technique classes during a specified week during the month of November. Submit all materials to the Director of Dance no later than the first Monday in December of Fall Term. All decisions are final; no further applications for the BFA program will be accepted from BS dance majors.
