Several schools have dance majors but a lot of them concentrate on ballet which Emily doesn't want to focus on. she prefers jazz and modern. Kennesaw has that and I think that's the program which the director requires the students to audition for various performances so they gain that audition experience. That's one thing to look at, does the program prepare the student for the dancing world. Emily's ultimate goal is to dance on Broadway.

Has your DGD looked at ULV (Las Vegas)? One of the instructors at our studio graduated from there. Good luck to your DGD.
I don't think she's really started looking at schools yet. My DD wants her to go to BYU and she's signed up for a Dance Camp there in the Summer so she'll be able to check it out. I'll have to make note of these places for when she gets serious about where she's going to go. Thanks.
