High school juniors, seniors, and transfer students interested in pursuing the dance minor at Samford are invited to be our guests on campus for the weekend of our annual dance concert. On Saturday, April 6, 2013, students will have the opportunity to meet Coordinator of Dance Lisa Gibbs through a ballet master class, meet their future classmates, audition for acceptance to the dance minor, and attend the dance concert. Students interested in attending this free event can register by completing the form located on the link at the top of the page. Registration will be open until Monday, April 1, 2013.
Students participating in the master class should arrive in the lobby of Harrison Theatre at 8:30 a.m. central time in their dance attire. Girls should wear pink tights, black leotard, and ballet slippers, and have their hair secured away. A skirt is optional. Boys should wear black tights or black jazz pants and a white t-shirt and black ballet shoes. Long sleeves and sweat pants, or other "warmies", are okay to wear for the first 15 minutes of class. Please do not wear jewelry. Class will begin at 9:00 a.m.
Students who would be enrolling at Samford in the fall 2013 term have the option to audition for acceptance to the dance minor as part of the day's events. (High school juniors should wait until their senior year to audition for official acceptance to the dance minor.)
