Department of Dance

Dance Studies

The Dance Studies concentration provides students with the tools for an interdisciplinary investigation into the structures of dance and choreography and how they operate as social, historical, cultural, economic, political, and artistic practices.

The concentration fosters a critical understanding of theoretical and embodied approaches in critical race theory, environmental studies, gender and queer studies, politics and human rights, philosophy, performance and art studies, and communication.

Students design their own program based on their interests and in relation to their enrollment in other majors and minors at the college. Such combined and tailored study allows not only for an understanding of dance as an aesthetic structure, but how dance, embodiment, and choreography can become driving forces for the betterment of society.

Alumni of the Dance Studies concentration are equipped to work in major dance and arts organizations, theaters, funding organizations, and providers of social and cultural services, or continue their study towards Masters and Ph.D. to pursue a career in academia.
