BA in Dance

The Dance Major curriculum offers an in-depth study of dance as an art form and cultural practice. Students are given the opportunity to explore dance from several analytical and methodological frameworks: technical, creative, historical, cultural, aesthetic, pedagogical and scientific, resulting in a rigorous balance between creative work and academic study.

Admissions, Advising & Student Resources

Degree Requirements

Completion Of The Major

A number of the courses required in the Dance Major are offered every other year. Consequently, a student should anticipate a minimum of two years to complete all coursework for the major. From his/her first quarter as a major, a student should work carefully with the Academic Advisor in order to pursue course work in a progression that will guarantee completion of the major in four years.

**The full comp series (Comp I plus 6 credits in Comp II and/or Comp III – both of which may be repeated) is required for those majors interested in choreographing for the Dance Majors Concert

*The Dance Department is currently reviewing its major and in the process of making changes to parts of the degree.  While this process takes time, we are making substitutions to different degree requirements. Please consult with an adviser regarding interim classes that could count toward degree requirements
