A dance education at Adelphi encourages the student to understand dance as an exploration of movement as well as an expression of culture and self. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in dance is a performance-based program, with equal time spent in the classical and modern techniques and creative traditions. Workshops, senior projects, and Dance Adelphi offer many opportunities for performance.
All prospective dance majors are required to attend mandatory auditions, which are reviewed by faculty. The audition consists of one class in classical ballet and one in contemporary dance, and a two minute solo, music of your choice.
The Department of Dance, in cooperation with the Office of Admissions, offers several talent scholarships each year to outstanding entering freshmen who show evidence of unusual ability and accomplishment in the arts.
