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.

Admission to Emory

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.

Portfolios/Application Supplements

We invite prospective students who are applying for admission to Emory to submit supplemental materials that provide examples of dance abilities / talent.

What to submit: Please submit a dance video (2-5 minutes in length) featuring you performing in one or more of the following dance styles: modern/contemporary (preferred), ballet, jazz, hip-hop. We also encourage you to submit work you have choreographed yourself. The video must be hosted online and you will need to submit a URL for us to view it. Please make sure your video is set to public and doesn't require permission or a password to view. We are unable to accept video files of any kind. 

Use the button below to submit your supplement after you have submitted your application to the Office of Admissions.

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, Professor Julio Medina, at

Your supplement must arrive by the deadline indicated for each admission plan, or it will not be reviewed.
