Events will include information sessions on careers in the arts and behind-the-scenes tours of the Creative Arts Center. There will also be master classes on the downtown campus for dance students. Lunch will be provided at the Creative Arts Center, as well as complimentary tickets for the matinee performance of the WVU annual dance concert, “Dance Now!” at 2 p.m.
Any students who wish to audition or submit a portfolio on this date will be welcome to do so, as well.
Students who plan to attend Audition and Portfolio Day should register in advance. To see the full schedule of events and more details about the audition/portfolio review process, go to the website at http://bit.ly/1hRoSSe.
The School of Theatre & Dance does not require a theater audition or a design portfolio unless the student wishes to be considered for a scholarship. However, dance students who wish to enter the School’s Bachelor of Arts degree program in Dance must audition for acceptance.
All three schools offer cash awards and scholarships—up to a full tuition waiver—to students who plan to study for a Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
School of Music scholarship recipients are chosen by audition. The criteria considered include: musical accomplishments, scholastic record and musical proficiency.
School of Art & Design scholarship awards are based on portfolio submissions that exceed basic competencies and abilities.
The School of Theatre & Dance offers scholarships on the basis of outstanding talent, academic achievement and the student’s demonstrated potential for success in the program.
Students who would like to register for the Feb. 8 Fall Preview Day may also call the School of Music at 304-293-4532 or the schools of Art & Design and Theatre & Dance at 304-293-4339.
