Western Kentucky University's Department of Theatre & Dance invites high school students to Virtual Dance Day, a faculty led technique class and college Q&A session.
Are you wondering if a dance major or minor 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.
Due to the COVID-19 concerns, we have elected to shift the format of Dance Day for fall 2020. The WKU Dance Program will host virtual Dance Days on Saturday, September 12, 2020 and Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 10:00-11:00 a.m. central time via Zoom. The NDEO Student Chapter will host a virtual Dance Day on Friday, October 16, 2020 at 5:00-6:00 p.m. central time via Zoom. These virtual events will provide a single dance class focused on a specific dance genre taught by WKU dance faculty or selected dance majors followed by a Q&A session with WKU dance faculty/current dance majors. To register for any or all of the virtual Dance Days, complete the online Fall Dance Day Registration Form.
The Spring 2021 Dance Day will follow our traditional schedule and format and coincide with a performance of Evening of Dance on Sunday, April 25, 2021. A detailed schedule will be emailed to registrants the week prior to the event. Registration for the Spring 2021 Dance Day will open in January.
