CSU Commercial Dance Day

Building our Dance Community

Commercial Dance Day gives college students in CSU dance programs the opportunity to connect, interact, and experience the multi-faceted and competitive world of commercial dance. The goal is to equip students with the necessary information to develop versatile dance skills,  professional conduct, and self-marketing strategies.

The day will consist of 2 mock audition sessions with 4 of the industry’s top choreographers  and a question and answer panel with Meisha Goetz representing Clear Talent agency, Lisa and Terry Lindholm from Go2Talent, Shayna Brouillard from Bloc, and Joy Dewing founder of Joy Dewing casting.

All currently enrolled CSU students are eligible to attend. Funding from CSUEA has made this event free for all interested CSU students. Parking is $8. Space is limited. Students from hosting institutions (CSUCI, CSUN, CSUDH) have priority enrollment beginning February 20.  Enrollment opens to all CSU institutions Feb 22.  A response email will be sent confirming enrollment by March 1. 

Registration open for all CSU students
