The Dance Bachelor’s of Arts program emphasizes the development of a technically trained body, the processes involved in the creative activity of making dances and building a strong theoretical base for understanding movement. The student prepares for a professional career in the multifaceted field of dance as artist, entrepreneur, manager, or dance specialist. In addition, courses in theatrical crafts such as lighting and costuming are required to reinforce the concepts behind presenting dances in the theatrical environment. The focus of the dance program is contemporary modern rather than classical modern.
