Explore Dance Creatively, Conceptually, and Technically

Students in the MFA in Dance program are exposed to vital aspects of the art as performers, creators, and observers and are encouraged to study broadly, widen their definitions of dance and performance, and engage in explorations of form and function.

MFA in Dance Program highlights:

  • Combines seminars in reading, writing, and research; choreographic inquiry; and a daily physical practice chosen from various genres
  • All students study choreography, experiential anatomy, dance history, lighting design and stagecraft, and music for dancers
  • Students show original work each semester in the winter and spring concerts and present final projects in the MFA Dance concert in their last semester
  • Frequent guest artists and lecturers visit campus
  • Proximity to New York City's dance scene
