During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Tisch Department of Dance will highlight their tours virtually.

Individuals who have strong technique and the potential to have a professional career as dancers and/or choreographers.
Early Decision is an admissions option for freshman applicants who are certain that New York University is their first choice college and who have decided that they will attend NYU if admitted. In the Tisch Dept. of Dance the Early Decision audition is very competitive.
If you feel that you are a strong candidate, submit an application to New York University as an Early Decision candidate by November 1st. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will notify the Dept. of Dance and an Early Decision audition audition instructions will be sent to you by email.
No. You cannot re-audition with the Regular Decision applicants.
No. A prospective student may apply only to one school and program at NYU.
Yes, and Dance will be considered the primary major. Once enrolled you should determine the requirements of the 2nd major. Having done that, you will discuss with an advisor how and if the additional courses can fit the into the dance program schedule. In some cases, students may have to take an additional semester to finish up the academic requirements of their 2nd major. It is challenging to double major but we have several students who double major and/or minor in other subjects.
NYU CROSS SCHOOL MINORS:
Prospective undergraduate (BFA) students can not apply to more than one program at a time in the Tisch School of the Arts.
Yes. The dance faculty is seeking applicants who are strong technically however they realize that all dancers have not been exposed to all dance aesthetics. Generally, they are looking for dancers that are able to absorb all styles of dance and show a willingness to try new styles.
Our program focuses on ballet and modern but there are students here who have an interest in those styles and use it in their choreography. Also, there are a number of dance studios in New York City for students to take such classes during their spare time.
We do not teach a particular style of modern. Our teachers are from diverse backgrounds and teach different styles of modern. The faculty rotate classes so all students will be taught by each teacher.
Simply submit an application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. While the transfer application deadline is April 1st, the Dept. of Dance strongly suggests that your application be submitted as soon as the portal is open, to ensure an in-person audition. Transfer students who are accepted begin the program as first year students. Any dance credits you have will not transfer to this program and Admissions determines which academic credits transfer based on their requirements.
