Performance Opportunities

For SJSU Dance Majors

SJSU's Dance students benefit from multiple and diverse performance opportunities from their freshman year through their final semester at the university. The Dance Program presents a minimum of three separate fully produced student concerts annually. 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.

Each year, the Dance program sponsors nine informal showings 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 state-of-the-art Dance Theater.
