Description of Program: The dance program at Cornish prepares you to perform, choreograph, direct and teach dance. You’ll know your history and you’ll develop the skills to speak and write about dance. Spend an average of 6 to 8 hours each day in the studio, with a minimum of 13 hours of technique classes per week. Perform both choreographed and improvisational works. The department offers additional elective technique classes each semester. Refine your technique in contemporary dance styles, jazz, modern, and ballet. Learn the fundamentals of technical production and design. Choreograph and create performance pieces for both real-world and digital spaces.
