I've gone over and over the financial aid/scholarship page and cannot find any specifics.  Only that you need to submit a supplemental video link for scholarship consideration by 11/1 for those who audition in fall.  I would love the link to the page with the details !

Lady Elle- the requirements for the video are under "apply undergraduate"- a third of the way down "video content guidelines" and submission. These were the scholarship video requirements that are now "mandatory" video for application. If you look in Youtube and search University of Arizona Dance audition or scholarship video there's about 20 videos you can view to get an idea how to construct yours. You can upload yours privately and send the hyperlink. Some have chosen to leave theirs up in public.

Okay, I read that as the actual video audition.  Those who are submitting an audition by video only.  Not a supplemental video.  It seems odd to me that they would ask for all the basics when they've already seen the dancer at the live audition.  Oh well.  I guess we'll put something together then!

We were told that the video was for scholarships and so that if they have any questions about judges scores they can look at the video

Wow, I see that now! Required for ALL auditioners!  I have been looking at youtube clips today which is why I questioned it.  They seemed redundant but now I see that that is what they want so, that's what they'll get!! We'll be doing lots of video recording in the next month!

Yes- that is a new thing this year. In the past they would ask for a video for the dancers that were "on the bubble." After DS experienced the audition process last year , it does make sense to help them reference back to the dancer if they had a video as well. There were 135+ dancers in the January audition- barre was broken down into 2 groups but they were all together for center and went in groups of 5. I think my son had #134!

thanks to all of your comments that when we hit the application submission road blocks, we knew to call the school. amazing they already saw his head shot and arabesque and dance resume. Nothing like getting a teenager to write his objective at midnight! ;)
