Adelphi dance students rehearse.

B.F.A. in Dance

A performance-based B.F.A. dance program.

In our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance program, you’ll take daily classes in both ballet and modern dance. In addition, you’ll study dance theory and composition, history and criticism, costumes and anatomy. Since only dance and theatre majors and minors are permitted to audition for roles, you’ll have ample opportunity to perform in student workshops and performances under the guidance of faculty and guest teachers and choreographers.

Off campus, you’re just 23 miles away from Manhattan, home of the world’s greatest ballet and modern dance companies and musical theatre.
