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


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 2016­17 school year on August 31 at 1 p.m. and September 1 at 1:15 p.m. in the Syufy Dance Studio. Dancers must attend both auditions and then, if selected, must enroll in Perfa 75­01 and Perfa 75­02. Questions? Contact Cathy Davalos, Director of Dance, at cdavalos@stmarys­



The Saint Mary’s Chamber Musicians, Wind Symphony, Orchestra, Jazz Band, and our award-winning choral groups, the Chamber Singers and Glee Club, are organized at the start of each semester. Questions? Contact Dr. Julie Ford at
