As a dance major, you will receive pre-professional training as a dancer while pursuing a liberal arts education. Dance majors are encouraged to attend the New York Arts Program or an off-campus apprenticeship with a dance company.

About the Major

You will take 11 required courses in modern dance and theatre. You also will complete a senior project, from a range of opportunities that suit your performance or research interests. You are expected to be involved in one theatre or dance production every semester. Through this experience, you will become close with fellow students and professors in the department.
