The CSULB Department of Dance is seeking broadly trained, dynamic, and distinctive movers and thinkers who are dedicated to the pursuit of a degree in dance. Preparation for admittance into our Department comes in many forms: vigorous academic preparation, continual study of numerous forms of dance (with emphasis on ballet, jazz, and contemporary modern dance), performance experience, and exposure to dance as an art form. While we look at a dancerís technique and training during our dance auditions, we also look at the individual. We seek students who are dedicated to learning and willing to expose themselves to the possibilities of dance that have yet to be investigated. (Click on Transfer for additional information regarding the acceptance of transfer dance majors.)

Becoming a Dance Major (Bachelor of Arts in Dance, Bachelor of Arts in Dance, option Dance Science, and Bachelor of Fine Arts) is based on both the live dance audition AND the CSULB admissions requirements. Out-of-state applicants may submit a video audition.
