The York U Dance Auditions take place throughout a full morning and are normally made up a few different activities. There is a welcome reception for students and parents, a warmup session for the auditioning students, an observation class or demonstration (where prospective students can watch current students dance), the audition class (all the students auditioning that day participate in a class as a group for a number of faculty assessors), and then a Q&A session. Auditioning students do not need to prepare solos or anything in advance, they are simply asked to participate in the various activities and styles during the class.
