If you or your child are not familiar with large cities it can feel very intimidating but with some reasonable smarts it is safe. I grew up in Madison Wi and went to the UW, which is considered a safe campus, and yet this was quiet deceptive. Many students did things there, like walking alone at 2 am, that are not safe because it feels like it is. At UC, I think people are more concious of security issues and therefore are more attentive.
As a faculty member we get sent on a list serve all reported crimes on campus and in the surrounding area and it is not an unusual amount, most are thefts or vandalism, and occasionally there is a violent theft. But my 13 year old takes classes here, walks to local shops for food and waits in the parking lot to be picked up at night.
If you have specific questions you can PM me and I may be able to help you out.

I have to say that overall, it appears to be an excellent, competitive program with some good performing opportunities at the school and in the city of Cincinnati. However -- the location really turned us off -- but more importantly, my dd won't consider the program in spite of how much she loved it -- because of the location.
While I really appreciate and respect calamitous' post -- and I am certain she is right on -- no amount of convincing can change my dd's mind. She won't consider UC because of the surrounding neighborhood. It's unfortunate.

And I probably am a little touchy on the safety issue, since it is frequently stated about UC. The surrounding community is not suburban or even middle class urban, but a lot of that has been bulldozed since last spring and is being rebuilt.

indiana university, butler, u. of oklahoma, u. utah, suny purchase, smu--there is some variation here but they're all clearly separatedin terms of traniing/selectivity from other dance programs
and then there're programs with dance programs that don't really turn out professional dancers (for ballet)

I can try and answer some questions if you want to PM. But I should warn you my knowledge of their dance program is very limited.

I am still very interested in the school because this April at the regional dance festival that my studio goes to I saw Mr. Tevlin once again. He was very happy to hear that Cincinnati had stuck on my mind and said that if I did choose to go to Cincinnati that I could most likely receive a scholarship. This made me, my mom, and my teacher all very excited to hear. I plan to audition in the fall still and hopefully I will get in and get a scholarship.

I think you know my daughter from Interlochen, (she was the intermediate AA dancer there in 2005). If you are the same person and coming to see UC and audition, PM me and maybe my DD can show you what she knows of UC. (Which isn't much since all her classes are Sat. mornings in the dance hallway.) But I know marginally more since I have worked there for 6 years.
They have finished most of the building around the CCM portion of campus and it looks much better than in past years.
If you aren't the person I am thinking of- enjoy your audition and time in Cincinnati and please do feel free to PM me if you have questions about the city.
