Information for Prospective Students
Dancers and musicians during the performance of the senior project of Kate Speer '08.
Dance is an open program at Swarthmore. Majors and non-majors study and perform side-by-side. Consequently there are no auditions for dance classes. Although there are no auditions, sending a video or DVD of your dancing can be useful in the admissions process.
Your video or DVD should be no more than 15 minutes in length and include as many as possible of the following:
- your name and a brief statement regarding your dance experience
- a performance sample in one or more styles (if the sample is a group work, indicate how the viewer can identify you)
- a simple classroom combination videotaped from 2 different angles
- a sample of your own choreography
Send Videos/DVDs to the Admissions office along with your application.
