The Emory Dance Program offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance and Movement Studies. A minor in Dance and Movement Studies is also available.
This degree is normally completed in four years and requires completion of the dance major/minor requirements in addition to the General Education Requirements of the Emory College of Arts and Sciences.
The Dance Program does not handle admissions to Emory University; this is coordinated through the Emory University Office of Undergraduate Admission. Please see the website for the Office of Undergraduate Admission for application and financial aid information.
Emory does not admit students who already hold a bachelor's degree and who are seeking a second bachelor's. However, you can take classes as a non-degree student. Please contact the Laney Graduate School for information at 404-727-6028.
The Emory Dance Program does not require an audition to major or minor in dance. Once enrolled at Emory, students planning to major or minor in dance should schedule a meeting to discuss their plans with one of the Program’s full-time faculty.
We invite prospective students who are applying for admission to Emory to submit supplemental materials that provide examples of dance abilities / talent. Using the list below, please send your material to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to include your full name, date of birth, and application ID# in your email.
- A video of no more than ten minutes in length, particularly modern dance if possible. Please submit links to videos online (YouTube, Viemo, etc.); to send a DVD, please see below. If you do not have video of you dancing in a modern style, please send video of another dance genre (ballet, jazz, hip-hop, etc.).
- A dance resume or short description of your dance training.
- Let us know if you are interested in a major or minor in dance.
- Please indicate your admission plan (Early Decision I or II, Regular Decision, Transfer Student) and whether you plan to apply to the Emory Scholars Program.
These materials will be used to assist in the application review and selection process. Please note that the Emory Dance Program does not make admissions decisions; we only provide feedback to the admissions committee.
If you have any questions, contact the Dance Program Admissions Liaison, Anna Leo, at email@example.com.
