Why study Dance at MMC?
Named One of the “Top 10” Colleges for Dance
From dancing in concert dance companies to Broadway shows and more, and from arts administration to writers, teachers, designers, choreographers or physical therapists, MMC alumni are creating the present and future of the field of dance.
Housed in New York City, the program draws upon the highest standards of the profession, is versatile in nature, and prepares students for various careers in dance. If it’s been thought about, our dancers are out there doing it.
We offer two degrees, the BFA and the BA, with a number of concentrations. Personal growth, on stage and off, is at the heart of our mission.
A World of Opportunity
Our students can audition for the MMC Dance Company, study abroad or apply for one of countless internships. Seniors are assisted in resume preparation, cover letters and photos, to land interviews and auditions—our priority is to prepare students for life after graduation, while at the same time helping them to make the most of every moment of their educational journey at MMC.
Our faculty consists of some of the finest professors and dance professionals in New York City. Under their guidance, students develop the discipline, self-confidence, and self-motivation valuable in any field, but essential to dance.
Studying dance at MMC gives a student the foundation to combine discipline with artistry and creativity — ultimately for a seamless transition to the professional dance world.
