If you are only interested in auditioning for a Dance Scholarship, you will still need to apply for admission to the university by January 15, 2018..

  1. Completed Scholarship Application (See attachments at the bottom of this page)
  2. Letter of Recommendation (if you have not taken dance classes at UVU)
  3. Letter of Intent – one typewritten page (limit 2500 characters) explaining personal interests, professional goals, and reason for choosing area of emphasis
  4. Current Transcript

Ballet: Come dressed to take a ballet technique class; women should bring pointe shoes. 

Ballroom: Refer to above.  

Modern: 1 minute solo of your own choreography so that we can see your skill and experience at creating, shaping, and performing your own original movement vocabulary.  We are interested in seeing movement you have created, not movement you have learned from teachers, other choreographers, etc.  Come in dance attire that allows us to see the line of the body clearly, as you will be taking an intermediate-level modern dance technique class that will include elements of composition and improvisation.
