One of the first US universities to offer degrees in dance (ballet and modern dance), the U has one of the largest and longest-standing dance programs in the country. We have evolved into a vibrant, innovative, and forward-thinking School of Dance accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance and celebrate nine decades of successful alumni. We are an incubator for dance education and artistic exploration. Our renowned faculty connect individually with students, nurturing young artists and cultivating an environment that fosters personal and artistic growth. We offer unique and plentiful performance opportunities, a range of scholarly and creative inquiry, rigorous and challenging coursework, and interdisciplinary explorations. Our curriculum is unparalleled in its breadth and depth, offering coursework in various dance techniques, choreography, screendance, music, anatomy, pedagogy, history, and dance studies. Comprehensive programs of study maintain a balanced emphasis on both performance and scholarship in a safe professional and inclusive atmosphere.
