The dance program cultivates a supportive environment for students and faculty to
innovate, and to grow artistically and intellectually. We foster excellence through
intensive and rigorous dance education that combines high levels of technical training,
practice as research, and interdisciplinary scholarship. By integrating the practical
and the scholarly, the program serves as a vital force in the cultural and intellectual
life of our society.
Our vision is to generate creative and versatile practitioners in professional artistry,
pedagogy and scholarship. We support individuals who strive to add their creative
voices to the field thereby advancing our profession.
Students accepted to Texas Tech University who wish to seek a BA or BFA in Dance must
also audition for the dance program. Auditions are held every fall and spring semester
and consist of prospective students learning and performing movement in contemporary,
ballet, and jazz. Auditions also include an expository writing component. Acceptance
to Texas Tech University does not ensure admission as a dance major. For more information,
