The Dance and Media concentration provides theoretical and practical experience for students who wish to record, document, present, and/or manipulate images related to the body, dance and movement.
Dance and Media students work in artistic, scholarly, archival and arts admin-istration/marketing contexts. Through a variety of experiences inside and outside the classroom, they are taught to think critically about the conception and production of audio and visual media for use in live, recorded, and web-based applications. Dance & Media students have participated in internships at NYC performing arts spaces, print and online publications, recording studios and events/marketing companies. At MMC, Dance & Media students have worked as photographers, videographers, writers, sound designers, programmers, performers, graphic designers and digital media artists, often using sophisticated technology and software packages.
A variety of sub-concentrations permit the exploration of specialized interests in the Dance and Media field: video production, audio production, digital imaging and web-based media, photography, and graphic design.
