The Dance Performance program follows a student-centered approach to developing dancers. You will gain technical and artistic skills in ballet, contemporary, jazz and tap, and explore your creative potential through dance composition and improvisation. The program includes acting and voice lessons, expanding your opportunities through interdisciplinary work. By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to start your career or continue training in a conservatory or university setting.
