Dance Auditions



Auditions for the Dance Program

LIU Brooklyn Dance program boasts the first Dance Wellness program in the country—we seek to help students reach their goals as dancers and prolong their careers by ensuring that their movements are biomechanically sound. Our faculty are world-renowned and are veterans of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Bill T. Jones, Twyla Tharp, Earl Mosley/Diversity of Dance, Doug Varone, and Martha Graham Dance Company. No matter the dance degree program, the LIU Brooklyn Performing Arts Department is dedicated to cultivating disciplined, creative, and intelligent artists.

For those students who are not able to attend on campus auditions, a video submission of the required repertoire may be submitted. We strongly recommend attending an in-person audition.
