Admissions into the University of Houston’s Dance Program are by audition only. Auditions are held each semester. Students interested in majoring, minoring or working toward the dance certification may audition prior to being accepted into the University of Houston. However, prospective students will not be allowed to enroll into dance classes until they are accepted by the University and the Dance Program. 

Audition Dates 

We offer three audition dates per academic year; one in the fall and two in the spring. These dates are currently deadlines for submissions of online audition applications. Each submission requires a minimum of two videos attached. 

Students interested in attending the University of Houston in the spring should submit their materials by the fall deadline. Students interested in attending the University of Houston in the fall can submit their materials by any three of the deadlines.
