Performing Arts Preparation

Admission to the School of Music, Theatre & Dance is highly selective. Most students who receive an offer of admission have extensive backgrounds in their intended areas of study. Successful applicants have taken full advantage of the training opportunities available to them. These can include: private lessons, youth orchestras, bands, and/or choirs; regional or national arts competitions; state solo and ensemble competitions; community and professional theatre or dance companies. Many successful applicants have also received local, state, regional, or national awards in their intended area of study. 

The background of admitted students varies, so don't make quick assumptions. It is absolutely possible for a student who does not have access to these activities to be competitive for admission. The only way to know for sure is to apply!
