High School Dance Day

UM High School Dance Day

Each year the UM Dance Program holds High School Dance Day, where High School students from dance studios across the region are invited to the UM campus to take dance classes, meet dance majors and faculty, and attend a dance concert.   Students are taken on a tour of our beautiful facilities and are provided opportunities to learn more about the UM Dance Program.

It is recommended that students who wish to participate be at either the Advanced Beginner, or Intermediate level of dance in order to have a fulfilling and rewarding experience.  For more information about UM Dance Day, please contact Karen Kaufmann (karen.kaufmann@umontana.edu).

To register students from your school, please complete the High School Dance Day Registration Form.
