When you arrive at Columbia, you’ll join an active community of students and faculty. We’ll encourage you to develop your distinct perspective as a dancer, regardless of the training you’ve had so far. Auditions will place you in the level of technique classes that’s right for you, and these will be coupled with dance studies courses so you can think critically about your experience in the studio. You’ll have the opportunity to audition to perform early on. You’ll also take core liberal arts courses with Columbia students from across campus.
