The Bachelor of Arts in Dance encourages young artists to explore their talents through comprehensive study of dance technique, choreography, and performance. BA candidates also pursue dance studies in such areas as history, dance cultures, pedagogy, stage production and kinesiology, where students gain the intellectual foundation to understand the body from the perspective of history, culture, and science. Dancers are also invited to choose either contemporary dance or tap/hip hop/jazz as their technical concentration. Through the support of the department’s professionally active and diverse faculty, students are encouraged to participate in performance opportunities to refine their unique talents as creative makers, doers, and thinkers.
Auditions are required to place students in the appropriate levels.
