The Duke Dance Program curriculum is designed to encourage the exploration of dance from interdisciplinary perspectives: historical, cultural, aesthetic, literary, technological, musical, scientific and creative. Students are able to customize their undergraduate dance curriculum by choosing one of the three study concentrations. At Duke, you will come to understand dance as a much more than a dance style or technique. Our curriculum allows you to explore dance expression from a historical and cultural perspective, and gain modern professional skills--whether your interests lie on the stage, behind it, or elsewhere. You can customize your course makeup, engage in undergraduate research and independent study, and explore the arts scene through study away programs such as Duke Arts in New York. Choreography and Performance The performing and creative arts are about communicating and reflecting the deepest hopes and concerns of the society that produces them. Our goal is to develop creative and articulate artists who are proficient in technique, performance, theory, and critical analysis, and who are able to use dance to communicate their experiences, ideas and perceptions as a world citizen. Dance integrates the creative, intellectual, physical and emotive spheres and leads one to apprehend, understand, analyze and produce knowledge in a way unique among disciplines.
