Dance explores the human body and its expressive possibilities in the context of art and aesthetics. You’ll study everything from choreography to composition, in both the studio and the lecture hall. Throughout your four years you’ll have the opportunity to produce and perform your own original works. The Dance program is offered by the School for Contemporary Arts in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology.  The bachelor of fine arts (BFA) with a major in dance approaches dance as an art form and integrates theory with creative and technical studio courses. Emphasis is given to contemporary dance technique, composition and experimentation. Courses are also offered in body conditioning practices, ballet, history and criticism, and movement analysis. Course work in other artistic disciplines is encouraged, and opportunities for participation in a variety of productions are available. The program is intended for students who desire to study dance in relation to other contemporary art disciplines and academic fields.
