BFA in Dance

A performance-based BFA dance program.

In our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance program, you’ll take daily technique classes in both ballet and modern dance. In addition, you’ll study dance theory and composition, history and criticism, costumes and anatomy. Round out your curriculum with electives in pointe, pas de deux, improvisation, and contemporary partnering. You’ll have ample opportunity onstage in main-stage performances and student workshops under the guidance of faculty and major guest-artists and choreographers.

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