High School University Program

The University High School Program provides the opportunity for gifted high school students desiring an accelerated ballet training environment to study with ballet majors at the University. Interested students must first apply and be admitted to the University of Utah High School Program. Prospective students must contact High School Services and the Student Recruitment office at (801) 581-8761 to request an application packet, or may access information on the University of Utah web site. They must also complete an application packet for the Ballet Department and successfully complete an in-person audition. Visit the Admissions & Auditions page.

Prospective students are encouraged to audition in person at the Marriott Center for Dance. In-state applicants are required to attend an in-person audition.

If coming to campus is not possible for an out-of-state student, please refer to the DVD audition criteria on the audition page.
