Strength, flexibility of body, mind and imagination. That’s what it takes to be a dancer. It also requires enormous passion and discipline. An education and career in dance is a rigorous undertaking. Columbia’s Dance program will fully prepare you for a successful career.

You will study with accomplished faculty as well as work with renowned visiting artists (past guests have included such troupes as the Trisha Brown Company, Urban Bush Women, and the Joe Goode Performance Group). You will be immersed in challenging curriculum that will engage you physically and intellectually— allowing you to explore coursework in music, dance history, composition, theory, and a variety of movement disciplines including modern, ballet, and African dance. You will develop your artistic voice in our state-of-the-art facilities: 33,000 square-foot, four story dance center that houses six studios, a dance video library, sound recording and media labs, and a 272- seat professional performance space— all of which was designed specifically with dancers in mind.
