Information for Prospective Students

dancers in rehearse African steps

Students rehearse African dance in the Troy Dance Studio.

If you are considering dance at Swarthmore we invite you to come and take a class. We suggest that you look at the course offerings and contact Susan Grossi ( to schedule a visit.

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. We welcome everyone to the Dance Program regardless of prior experience in formal dance classes.  However, we encourage students with prior dance experience to submit an Arts Supplement through SlideRoom.  Please visit Admissions for more information about this process.

For questions regarding dance, please email: or find us on Facebook
