Performance Opportunities

For SJSU Dance Majors

With a program that greatly emphasizes performance, Dance Majors are eligible to perform beginning in their freshman year. The Dance Program presents a minimum of three separate fully produced student concerts annually, providing ample performance opportunities.  Our pre-professional company—University Dance Theater—provides students with the opportunity to experience a professional performance environment at the collegiate level, including participation in works by well-known choreographers.  All Dance Majors are eligible to audition for this company at the end of their freshman year.

In addition, the program sponsors nine informal showings each year of studies from Choreography classes in which all students participate. In their senior year, all Dance Majors are required to perform in the Portfolio Concert to be evaluated in performance and/or choreography.

All dance performances at SJSU take place in our brand new Dance Theater.
