PERFORMING OPPORTUNITIES

The Performing Arts Department welcomes students from across the College into its performing ensembles, and provides multiple performance opportunities each academic year.

DANCE

Dance auditions are not required for the Performing Arts major or minor in Dance. Students may audition for performance ensembles, including the Saint Mary's College Dance Company, early in the new academic year.

The Saint Mary's College Dance Company will hold auditions for the 2018-­19 school year on August 27 11:45 am - 12:50 pm (ballet) and August 28th 11:30-1:05 (modern dance) in the Syufy Dance Studio (Room 130). Dancers must attend both auditions and then, if selected, must enroll in Perfa 75­01 and Perfa 75­02. Questions?
