Arts Discover Day: Dance

Do you have a passion to make an impact in this world using the gift of dance? Belhaven’s dance program provides rigorous technical training, numerous performance opportunities, individualized instruction, and focused career preparation. A committed team of experienced faculty teaches dance with a Christ-centered approach. The faculty invite prospective students to explore life at the Belhaven University Dance Department in our state-of-the-art facility during Dance Discover Day. Come meet instructors and students who will eagerly share their experiences of our unique program and studies in dance.

We have two exciting events planned for students interested in the dance program at Belhaven University. Students can plan to attend one event or both! The schedules for both events are listed below.

Dance Discover Day, Friday, February 11, 2022 (Part of Arts Discover Day, sign up below)
Dance Audition Day, Saturday, February 12, 2022 (Sign up through the Dance web pages)

Register today! There are two separate registration forms for these events.
