Day of Dance

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to host Day of Dance this year. We will be hosting virtual informational sessions that you can attend if you are interested in the program and want to find out more about the program.

 

All of our auditions will take place digitally. Click here for more information.

Students, aged 15-23, who are interested in the Dance Program here at TAMU will be able to come into the classroom for a typical day in the life of a dance major. Registered participants will take three classes (ballet, modern, and Pilates/wellness). T-shirts will be available for purchase. We try to coincide our Day of Dance Program with a performance, and if one is happening you will be able to purchase tickets.

The cost for the Day of Dance is $50 ($65 value). After you have registered, please send the following forms either by email to brgriffin@tamu.edu or by mail to 4245 TAMU, College Station, TX 77843-4245. Refunds will be processed up until 30 days before the event. Cancellations occurring within 30 days before the event will not be refunded.

Please note: given that we still have availability, we might be able to transfer your registration to another DOD within the same academic year if you are unable to attend your original date.
