  • This Major can be taken in two-week increments. Our 4- and 8-week sessions are divided into two-week blocks, giving students the option to change their Major every two weeks.

Proper body alignment and posture are essential to dancers as it improves balance and control, and makes them appear more elegant and confident. Focus on building your dynamic alignment with one period of ballet and one period of contemporary dance each day. Under the guidance of experienced dance educators and professional dancers and choreographers, students have opportunities to collaborate and create their own dances, as well as perform for one another and learn ways of giving feedback. Dance studios are open-air with at least one side exposed to the natural environment. All levels welcome.

For information on COVID procedures in this Department, please visit our COVID Updates page.

In addition to their three-period Major, students enjoy a rotating one-period Recreational Activity every day with their group. Visit our Recreational Activity page for more information.
