I'm sure dance departments vary (and I don't know about Indiana specifically) but it is common for deferred students to have to re-audition for their place in the program.

Definitely makes sense that they would have to re-audition. 
sounds like while there is a deposit to hold a spot (and I’m sure that varies from school to school) you are not on the hook for the whole year’s tuition until they start in the fall? So if a trainee spot was offered over the summer you could take it and just lose the deposit?

That's what I believe. The deposit saves your spot, but tuition bill is due just before school starts. Of course, the deferral may mean losing scholarships as well. I honestly want my d at college because the pandemic has put arts institutions so close to the edge. I feel she will have better access to many resources at college than with a school/company.

We attended a zoom question and answer session for the dance program. It was super helpful and really encouraging! The program sounds so top-notch. My d really loved hearing about the fantastic faculty, the wonderful facilities, and from the students. The COVID measures sounded very good. It would be fantastic if my d could attend!!!

We attended the same zoom info meeting! We walked away hugely impressed. I think my dd would be thrilled to get in.

My daughter has not heard either. The only email she received was from Ms. Wroth on Friday to watch a showing/filming of the students through zoom.

At the virtual info season and Q and A recently with the dance dept, they said there was a hard date by which they would notify, but hoped to be before then. Was the hard date April 1 and hopefully before? My mind was hoping it was March 1, does anyone remember? Thanks
