If you're a rising junior or senior living in the Southeast, you'll want to mark your calendar for the College Dance Fair, taking place in Boca Raton, FL, from August 29-31. The Dance Fair brings several great college and university dance programs together under one roof, and gives you the opportunity to speak one-on-one with admissions counselors.
Want to know how often you'll get to perform as an undergrad? How 'bout what the dance studios are like on each campus or whether there'll be opportunities to show your own choreography? Curious how often guest artists come to teach? Don't be shy - now's the time to ask!

The Dance Fair also hosts two days of master classes with teachers from the various colleges. This is a great chance to get a feel for different teachers before you throw yourself into the college audition process.
Applying to college can feel completely overwhelming. But you'll be able to make the best possible choices if you're well informed about each of the schools you're considering.
