gogators Posted April 21, 2008 Report Share Posted April 21, 2008 (edited) Dd will be touring/interviewing with Sarah Lawrence this summer, so will be sure to post a report here later on! Sarah Lawrence does offer an array of dance classes taught by its dance faculty, but it's definitely is more modern, post-modern based. Here's what the dance director stated in reply to my questions: "The dance program at the college is rigorous, and focused primarily on the integration of creative, technical and analytic studies in dance. Although we do offer three levels of ballet studies the majority of our practice classes are in contemporary modern and post modern dance styles. If XX is interested in exploring the diversity of the art form Sarah Lawrence may be a good fit. You may have gathered from our website, or other materials, that there are no majors in any subject at Sarah Lawrence, and admission to the college is through academic application, i.e., we do not audition students in the performing or visual arts." I should state that SLC is more of a progressive, liberal arts college where classes are small seminars limited to 15 students and students are assigned a faculty "don" who serves as the student’s academic and personal adviser throughout the undergraduate years. (Sarah Lawrence does not accept SATs as part of the application, tho' the application process is still pretty rigorouos.) ============ Dd visited the campus just recently, but unfortunately the college and its admissions office was closed for the rest of the summer and we did not get a chance to speak with anyone on campus. Campus is lovely, but smaller than others we've visited (about 45 acres). But the dorm housing is unique - a series of mansions and houses converted into dorm housing - definitely doesn't have that "institutional" long-hallway feel. No other info to offer on SLC other than what's posted here and on SLC's website. Edited August 24, 2008 by gogators Quote Link to comment
