The B.A. in dance gives students a broad-based education and training in dance allowing
students a wide range of flexibility to explore any and all aspects of dance. The
degree combines a theoretical and analytical approach to understanding dance with
a practical approach through experiential learning. The degree program allows students
to combine their dance training with another discipline or area of study to prepare
for careers not specifically within the professional world of dance performance.
For example, students may combine the B.A. in dance with a minor in fine arts entrepreneurship

a career in Dance Conditioning or Physical Therapy. The B.A. in Dance also serves
to prepare students interested in continuing their studies to the M.A. and Ph.D. level.
