Dance Auditions


In order to pursue the B.A. in dance at Salve Regina, students must apply and be accepted to the University and audition for and be admitted to the dance program. Students who wish to minor in dance are welcome to audition, although it is not required.

Current students who wish to pursue the B.A. in dance should contact department chair Lindsay Guarino to gain approval and/or arrange an audition.

Requirements for Prospective Students

Students who are applying for fall 2023 admission complete a two-step application process.

Step 1: Apply to Salve Regina

Apply using the Common Application and select dance as your major.

Step 2: Apply to the Dance Program

Once your application to Salve Regina has been submitted, you will receive a login for your student status page, where you can complete the audition form and upload your pre-recorded video. This is required by the supporting materials deadline for each decision plan. You will be notified of your acceptance to the dance program at the time of admission, and results of the arts scholarship competition will be announced by March 15.

Audition Guidelines

Applicants should submit a 2-1/2 to 3 minute video in jazz, contemporary, tap, hip hop or African diasporic style emphasizing rhythm, musicality and personal style. Please ensure that your link is shareable (YouTube, Vimeo or Google Drive are all good options) and security settings allow your video link to open immediately. At the beginning of the video, please introduce yourself and credit the composer/music artist and choreographer. After submitting your video, a date and time will be coordinated for a live, virtual interview.
