NOTE:

The January audition is an Early Decision/Early Commitment audition. This means that those attending this audition wish to become a student in the Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment in fall 2021 and have selected Oklahoma City University as their first choice university/college and the OCU dance program as their first choice dance program. Students should not be applying to or attending auditions for other programs after attending the early decision/early commitment audition. We will notify auditioners of the audition results within two or three weeks following the audition. Auditioners who are accepted must make an early commitment to OCU and the Ann Lacy School in February to become a dance major for fall 2021, applying for financial aid if needed, making a commitment deposit, making a housing deposit, and taking other steps in good faith to become an OCU student in fall 2021, subject to acceptance for admission by the university. Commitment deposits must be submitted no later than March 15, 2021 or a dancer’s position may be forfeited. Those needing to wait until May 1st to decide which university they wish to attend should plan to attend our March audition.
