Audition opportunities have been UPDATED AND EXPANDED to serve the needs of dancers with various schedules and planning needs.  This early decision dance admission and scholarship audition will take place alongside the High School Workshop hosted on January 27, 2018. 

Auditioners will be required to participate in the High School Workshop, and then will have the opportunity to perform their 30 second solo after the workshop has ended. 


UPDATED Eligibility Requirements for all auditions.


To be eligible to register for the dance program auditions or video submissions, auditioners must FIRST apply for admission academically to Oklahoma City University.




Students (domestic or international) must have at least one of the following: 

  • ACT composite score of 20 or above
  • SAT composite score of 950 or above (excluding the writing test) for SAT test taken prior to March 2016
  • SAT composite  score of 1030 or above for SAT test taken March 2016 or after

 If you have any questions regarding our audition process please contact Ryan Barret at or 405-208-5644. 



The fall 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 2018 and have selected Oklahoma City University as their first choice university/college and the OKCU dance program as their first choice dance program.  It means that we will notify auditioners of the audition results within two or three weeks following the audition and that auditioners who are accepted must make an early commitment to OKCU and the Ann Lacy School in November to become a dance major for fall 2018, applying for financial aid if needed, making a housing deposit, and taking other steps in good faith to become an OKCU student in fall 2018, subject to acceptance for admission by the university.  Those needing to wait until May 1st to decide which university they wish to attend should plan to attend our March audition.



***We have a no refund policy on our dance admission audition tickets (this includes auditioners and observers). ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Please make sure you have first applied academically to Oklahoma City and have met our required ACT/SAT scores in order to be eligible to audition
