Undergraduate Auditions

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the CSULB Dance major.  After you have applied to CSULB via Cal State Apply website, the second step in becoming a dance major at CSULB is to take the CSULB Dance entrance audition.  CSULB Dance is seeking dynamic and distinctive movers and thinkers who are dedicated to the pursuit of a degree in dance. Preparation for admittance into our department comes in many forms: broad academic preparation, the continual study of numerous forms of dance (with emphasis on contemporary/modern dance, jazz, ballet, and hip hop), performance experience, and exposure to dance as a creative and expressive art form. While we look at a dancer’s technique and training during our dance auditions, we also look at the individual. We seek students who are dedicated to learning and open to new ways of exploring and studying dance.

As an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD), CSULB Dance offers training in numerous levels. Preparatory levels include Introduction, Beginning, and Intermediate; Dance Major levels include Levels I, II, and III Technique.

Prospective dance majors for all of our degree paths participate in the audition process.

The admissions audition for the dance major consists of a completed audition application and an audition.
