The BFA Dance program at Peabody prepares students to be at the forefront of dance innovation through performance, choreographic and critical historical and theoretical exploration. Studying dance at Johns Hopkins University, one of the world’s premier research institutions, gives students the opportunity to make connections between the study of dance, science, technology, and the humanities. Students can take courses in Modern Dance and Ballet technique, somatic approaches to movement and choreography, perform in a pre-professional student dance company, and collaborate with world-renowned guest artists. Peabody graduates can pursue careers as performers, choreographers, teachers, researchers, and arts administrators.
Live and Regional Auditions Guidelines The live audition at Peabody will consist of a ballet barre and center combinations including adagio, petit battement and pirouettes. It will be followed by a modern dance phrase and sequence traveling across the space. An improv section will also be included. Auditionees should have a 2 minute solo prepared. The solo may be choreographed by oneself or someone else and may be in any genre of dance. For more information>>
