Dance Discover Day

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 and Dance Audition 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 19, 2021
Dance Audition Day, Saturday, February, 20, 2021

Both of these events are in person and will have limited space for students and parents to attend. Please note, if we have to pivot from in-person format to a virtual format due to changes in CDC guidelines, we will notify you through email.

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

We are so confident that you will love what you experience during your visit with Belhaven, we will add $1000 to your first year scholarship package when you come to the Dance Discover Day. (Note, if you only attend the Dance Audition Day, you are not eligible to receive the Visit Scholarship.)

Please call the admission office at 800-960-5940 with any additional questions.
