The Department of Dance prepares articulate artists in an intensive learning environment through performance, choreography, teaching, scholarship, and service that integrate body, mind, and spirit.
Performing opportunities are provided both on and off-campus with various groups that travel locally, nationally, and internationally. Most dance technique and performance classes are not restricted to dance majors. Placement in technique and performance classes is determined by audition.
In addition to the wide variety of foundational courses and advanced technique and performance classes, intensive major course work includes studies in the dance sciences, dance history, and additional academic work that develops performance, choreography, teaching, scholarship and leadership skills in all types of dance. At Brigham Young University, dance celebrates the best in humankind and strives to enrich the lives of all who experience it.
