Department of Dance

After MMC

After graduation our students gain employment in many areas of the dance world.

In the first semester of senior year, the department assists students with resumes, photos and cover letters to equip them for interviews and or auditions. In the last semester of senior year students are encouraged to begin the audition and interview process, and to establish relationships with other dance professionals in New York City.

Former students can be found performing in companies, directing their own companies, performing on Broadway and in touring companies, performing in films, teaching dance, designing costumes, pursuing degrees in higher education, working in arts administration and pursuing careers in other fields. Below is a list of dance organizations with which our alumni have been or are currently affiliated.

“I don’t even know where to begin…. The last
four years have transformed me as a dancer,
an artist, and as human being. … I entered MMC
as a collegedance skeptic, and I promise that I
am leaving as Marymount’s biggest advocate.”

- Mia Deweese, BFA ‘13
