Our department offers a B.F.A. in Dance, an undergraduate program rich in artistic integrity and disciplined dance training. It also provides a strong academic and theoretical core, essential to producing wholly integrated artists and successful dance professionals.
An audition is required for acceptance into the dance major.
The degree includes courses in dance technique, repertory, improvisation, composition, pedagogy, history, music, production, movement analysis, injury prevention, and Pilates certification. Students also complete requirements in the arts and humanities, taking a carefully considered core selection of classes.
Technique classes and repertory rehearsals are part of the daily routine. Although the program is based in modern and contemporary dance, students also study ballet and world dance forms. They can elect to study musical theatre, tap, and jazz, and work with their own creative forms several days a week.
