Open House

The Department of Dance invites prospective students to a twice-yearly open house that provides prospective students opportunities to take classes, meet faculty members and current students, and find out more about scholarships, financial aid, and opportunities within the department. Faculty and staff also welcome the opportunity to get to know prospective students and their families.

UNC Charlotte Department of Dance does not require an audition for acceptance; auditions are for placement only. Admission to the Professional Training Certificate in Dance with Charlotte Ballet does, however, require an audition. To schedule an audition, contact Delia Neil, Certificate Coordinator. Information about auditions for the Professional Training Certificate with Charlotte Ballet is available here.  If you audition for the certificate program in a city other than Charlotte, you may consider this your UNC Charlotte Department of Dance placement audition.  Be sure to notify the Department of Dance that you’ve auditioned with Charlotte Ballet.
