My daugher will be a senior dance major next at PPU. She is a modern major, which is by far the smallest program of the three dance areas. When she auditioned she asked to be considered for any area. She was accepted into Ballet and modern, not the jazz program. I assume from your name you are interested in jazz. It is my understanding this is the most competitive of the three dance areas to get into so if you are really interested in the school you may want to accept in any dance area. My D had very little jazz prior to college, so not getting accepted in jazz was not a surprise.
My D also auditioned for and was accepted at Shenandoah. In the end between academic and dance scholarships and grants the two schools ended up being very close to the same cost wise for us. DD liked being in city which was a real deciding factor for her.
