Department of Dance

Dance Studies

The BA Dance Concentration in Dance Studies equips students with a detailed knowledge of dance practices and theories across a range of social, historical, cultural, economic, political, and artistic contexts.

It fosters a thorough understanding of selected theoretical debates and issues that are pertinent to the study of dance in order to provide students with creative, compositional and performance strategies for the production, analysis and documentation of dance.

Students will learn to select and manage relevant source materials from which they can analyze, interpret and synthesize research findings. Students will also be able to critique, construct and embody ideas through oral, literary, electronic and performance modes.
