During your visit, students will have opportunity to take class with GCU Dance faculty, meet current dance majors, and take a campus tour. There are several dates to select from, but registration is first come- first serve: March 7 and 28 and April 11. We will notify you to confirm the date of your group's visit. GCU will provide lunch and reimbursement for up to $150 of your transportation costs. When you arrive, bring us a signed W-9 and transportation invoice from your school or district.
