Your path to artistic and academic excellence starts here.
The School for Classical & Contemporary 跳舞’s BFA degrees combine the depth of conservatory training with the breadth of a liberal arts education. We offer comprehensive studies in dance and dance-related subjects, including classical and contemporary dance technique, choreography, improvisation, dance history, teaching methods, variations, classical partnering, contact improvisation, dance theory, music for dance, lighting for dance, functional anatomy and international dance forms. Two semesters of career preparation coursework aid in specific preparatory skills such as auditioning, resume and website construction, graduate school identification, grant application, and career development.
Our faculty believes that dance education begins in the studio — with equal emphasis on classical and contemporary dance training. You’ll combine technical training and scholarly inquiry to make informed artistic choices and explore the language of dance as both a creator and performer.
You’ll have numerous chances to perform and create through the faculty/guest artist concert each semester, senior choreography concerts, and travel to the American College 跳舞 Association each year. BFA majors can choose to study abroad for a semester at University of Roehampton, the UK’s number one ranked dance program.访问 Department Website
