Each semester, the School of Theatre and Dance hosts Dance @ Kent, a day for prospective students to learn more about Kent State's dance program. Open to high school students, Dance @ Kent participants spend the day taking college level dance classes, learning about auditioning for a college dance program, and interacting with faculty and current students. Students can expect to participate in ballet, contemporary, musical theatre dance, dance and conditioning, and dance technology courses.
