What are Graduates doing now?
Many of our graduates are teaching in secondary schools, charter schools, and privately.
Others are attending graduate school in dance and other disciplines or dancing professionally.
The mission of the Department of Dance is to foster academic and artistic excellence
through an intensive technical and reflective study of dance. Anchored in a common
core curriculum, with several areas of emphasis, our program provides a rich and stimulating
environment where students cultivate their technical, aesthetic, creative, and scholarly
potential. We value superior (engaged) teaching, which promotes dance as an artistic
and cultural expression that has the power to enrich and transform the individual,
community, and society.
