Placement for Non-Majors

Many courses offered by the dance program count towards core curriculum credit in Artistic Knowledge and Experience as well as the area of Engaged Learning. 

Auditions are not required for Dance minors or for students wanting to register for Level I dance classes.

All dancers entering Loyola and enrolling in DANC courses Level II or above should attend a placement session, usually held prior to the start of each semester. This is an opportunity for all incoming dancers to meet faculty, learn about our course offerings, the Dance minor or major, and most importantly, to ensure that they are correctly placed in the technique level for their work in our program. Students should come with their course schedules and appropriate dance clothes and shoes.
