In the Dance Bachelor of Arts program at the Corcoran School, we train students to tell their own stories through movement. If you are ready to grow as a dancer and as an artist, to be mentored by internationally acclaimed instructors, and to cultivate your artistic voice, the Corcoran is for you.
We are dedicated to educating choreographers of the future through our global, interdisciplinary community located in the heart of Washington, D.C. Working with internationally known guest artists through classes and workshops, our students establish professional connections to a variety of geographies and heritages with countless performative opportunities both in and out of the studio.
Our program prepares you for a professional career in the multifaceted field of dance as artists, entrepreneurs, managers or dance specialists. While we focus on the contemporary modern style of dance rather than classical modern, our courses are allied with the body of knowledge found in somatic theories. Modern technique classes are offered at four levels, and students take additional classes in dance history, production, and career strategies.
If you’re looking for a dance program that emphasizes art and creative problem solving, where you’ll engage with diverse peers and innovative faculty, there is no better place than at the Corcoran School.
