INFO FOR 2020

Thank you for researching UM Dance days!

In lieu of the full event this year, we are proceeding with a less formal occasion. Please join us for a couple of classes on Friday, January 31, and attend the highly acclaimed American College Dance Association Benefit Concert the same evening. 

If you are interested in auditioning to be a dance major, we are holding auditions on Saturday, February 1, at 10A in the Open Space (PARTV 005).

More information about applying to be a dance major can be found on our "Becoming a Major" page.

Please email Associate Professor Heidi Jones Eggert, Head of Dance, if you are planning to attend Friday classes or the Saturday audition or both!  She will gladly provide you with complimentary tickets to the evening performance.
