Program overview

A pre-professional, process-based and performance-oriented program, this 120-credit degree explores the wide variety of roles for dance professionals and surveys the world’s great dance traditions, from African and Asian dance to modern, jazz, ballet and tap. Combining advanced education in dance and theatrical production with opportunities to develop specific skills through training and sustained practice, all in the context of a strong liberal arts program, the B.F.A. in Dance Studies teaches the art form and not just technique. Students are encouraged to choreograph after the third semester. Coordinated with the Post Theatre Company and the Post Concert Dance Company, the degree offers extensive performance and choreography opportunities and requires substantial participation in the work of both companies. Audition and interview required.
