Dance Auditions

Drexel Dance Auditions 2023

We’d love to get to know you! We are interested in how you think, move and express yourself. Each of the following will help us to learn more about what kind of a dancer, artist, creative problem solver and community member you might be. We have two options for auditions; video submission or live audition.

Video Audition 

Video submissions will be accepted starting August 1. Please submit the following videos through Slideroom:

Note: We do not need a highly polished or edited video! Something filmed simply with your phone is fine. We are interested in seeing who you are as a mover and person, not your skills as a filmmaker. If you have any questions about how to submit these videos, please email drexeldance@drexel.edu. We’d be happy to help.

1. Film yourself answering the following two questions:
    a. What is it about dance at Drexel that made you apply to this program?
    b. What do you contribute to a community? Can you share an example?
    c. Tell us about your interest and involvement in the dance community

2. Choose any two of the following five combinations. Learn the combination and submit a video of yourself doing this combination. Combination videos can be found by clicking each technique. 
    a. Ballet (video with Blanca Huertas-Agnew)
    b. Modern (video with Jennifer Morley)
    c. Jazz (video with Britt Fishel)
    d. Hip-Hop (video with Clyde Evans)
    e. West African Pt. 1 + West African Pt 2. (video with Antoinette Coward-Gilmore)

3. Prepared Solo- prepare a 90-second solo based on a creative task turned into a solo. This can be in any dance form, including Hip-Hop, Jazz, classical Indian, Spanish, Irish, etc. You may use music, text, soundtrack, or silence.
