This audition for the fall 2022 admission are open!


The fall virtual audition is an Early Decision/Early Commitment audition. This means that those virtually attending this audition wish to become a student in the Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment in fall 2022 and have selected Oklahoma City University as their first choice university/college and the OKCU dance program as their first choice dance program.

It also 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 2022, applying for financial aid if needed, making a housing deposit, and taking other steps in good faith to become an OKCU student in fall 2022, 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.
