We welcome prospective students to visit our program by attending a dance class and meeting with one of our faculty members. Please contact the Dance Program office at least one to two weeks in advance of your visit by submitting the form below.

If you have specific questions about visiting, please put them in the note/questions section of the form or contact Program Coordinator Anne Walker by email: dance@emory.edu or phone: 404-727-7266.

Times to Visit

The best time to visit the Dance Program is while classes are in session. For fall semester 2017, students can visit between August 31 and December 1, with the exception of Labor Day (September 4), fall break (October 9-10) and Thanksgiving break (November 22-24).

For spring semester 2018, students can visit between January 25 and April 27, with the exception of spring break (March 12-16).

Visits can only be scheduled Monday through Friday, not on weekends.

Summer visits
We do not offer dance technique classes during the summer. A meeting with a faculty member may be possible, depending on your visit dates. Please contact the Dance Program office at least one to two weeks in advance of your visit to inquire.

Prospective students are welcome to visit our dance technique classes (modern, jazz, or ballet) with advance notice. Please make sure to schedule your visit with the dance program office so the instructor can be notified, and so we can ensure that your visit date is a convenient time to visit the class.

Students can either observe or participate in a class. We encourage participation, although students should have the requisite skills for the level of class they wish to take.

If you plan to major or minor in dance, we recommend visiting a modern dance class because the program is modern-based. We encourage you to visit an upper level contemporary modern class (III or IV), or Modern II, if your schedule permits.

Please see our fall 2017 class schedule to help plan your class visit.

Meeting with a Faculty Member

Prospective students planning to major or minor in dance can request a meeting with one of our full-time faculty members (1-2 week advance notice requested).

Campus Tours

Please contact the Emory Office of Undergraduate Admission to schedule your campus tour and information session: www.emory.edu/admissions. Tours can be scheduled on-line, or you can contact the Office of Admission by phone at: 404-727-6036.

Portfolios

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 dancesupplements@listserv.cc.emory.edu. Please make sure to include your full name, date of birth, and application ID number in your email.

  1. 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.).

  3. Let us know if you are interested in a major or minor in dance.
