Moving Images photo - dancer in front of IU Art Museum. You have decided to apply to join the Contemporary Dance Program at IU. The IU Contemporary Dance Program offers a collection of dance experiences that are accessible to students who seek serious study in the art of dance. The program's core offerings consist of curricula which, through the highest quality of training and instruction, strengthen and refine contemporary dance technique as well as provide scholarly inquiry into the history, science and aesthetics of dance. The faculty of the IU Contemporary Dance Program strives to not only teach, but mentor, and provide a strong theoretical base from which each dancer can grow and work as an individual artist. Students are encouraged to seek their own venue for expression, such as performance, choreography, teaching, production or scholarship, and prepare for a successful career in the professional and academic field of dance.

Applying to be a student of the University and applying for an audition to the Dance program are two separate processes. Please read the Application page for step-by-step instructions. Read the Audition page to prepare yourself for an audition with IU Contemporary Dance Program.
