Dance Student Resources
The MTSU Dance Theatre provides students with pre-professional performing opportunities while still in college. Dance Theatre auditions take place during the first week of the fall semester for the fall company. Spring company auditions take place during the last week of the fall semester. The Dance Theatre company also produces an annual Student Gala, featuring student choreography.
The MTSU Dance Theatre aims to provide the local community with high quality concert dance in a range of styles including ballet, jazz, tap, West African and contemporary dance. Performances take place both on and off campus. MTSU Dance Theatre also travels each year to the American College Dance Association Conference. Students have also performed in China, New York, Chicago, Ohio, Iowa, Georgia, Florida, Arkansas, Arizona, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Mississippi. In the Middle Tennessee region, our students have been featured in venues that include the Frist Center for Visual Arts, the Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts, the South Jackson Civic Center, the Tennessee Association of Dance, Chattanooga High School Center for Creative Arts, and the Vanderbilt Dance Program.
The MTSU Dance Theatre Student Advisory Board is elected by company members of MTSU Dance Theatre. The MTSU Dance Student Advisory Board gives feedback for the dance program, fundraises, and advertises for the promotion of dance on MTSU campus.
