The UMBC Department of Dance offers challenging and innovative instruction in technique, performance, history, composition, dance and technology, and production. The program integrates the study of dance as a discipline within a liberal arts program. Our program develops the “whole” dancer, integrating the physical with the intellectual, and the analytical with the expressive. Students train in a wide range of styles with core faculty and visiting artists, gaining new perspectives about the changing world of contemporary dance. Our goal is to produce unique dance artists who move beautifully, and have something to “say” as dancers and choreographers. We challenge our students to perform to their fullest potential, to test their limits as choreographers, and to question and think critically about dance.
