College Day is a free event for high school students, but registration is required.
High school students interested in pursuing dance in college are invited to come spend a day in the life of an Ohio State Dance major! Visiting students will take and observe classes, enjoy lunch, see student work, attend an information session about our major and minor programs, and mingle with our current BFA students. Students will also have the opportunity to tour our new state of the art facilities and see a campus dorm room.
9:45am-10:15am CHECK In at Sullivant Hall Rotunda
We look forward to greeting you in Sullivant! Plan to arrive sometime between 9:45 and 10:15 as we want to have time to store your belongings in our secured space and to disperse groups to the classrooms before the beginning of technique classes at 10:20
10:20am-12:00pm OBSERVE TECHNIQUE CLASSES, Sullivant Hall
There will be five different technique classes taking place during this time frame. College Day participants will be divided into two groups that will rotate between the classrooms. We have taken care to organize a rotation schedule that provides maximum viewing opportunities for you with minimal impact to the other academic classes that take place in the building. It is imperative that you use your best audience etiquette both inside the studio and outside in the hallways. There will be plenty of time for discussion once we convene after lunch.
