You will then record your performance of both the ballet and contemporary material and upload it as a single file to YouTube or Vimeo. You will then provide the link to your performance in the Dance Major Audition Application.
We recommend that women wear black leotards and tights, and that men wear all black dance attire. Please wear flat ballet shoes during the ballet portion of the audition.
