– Marcia McCaffrey, NH Dept. of Education

The Dance curriculum is based on modern and contemporary dance, focusing on technique, choreography and performance. Courses in K-12 Dance Teacher Education, ballet, jazz, and dance history round out the dance major’s studies.

Each year students perform and present their choreography in our fully produced main stage dance concert, in student-choreographed productions, and in class presentations.

Additional experiential opportunities include master classes and performances with visiting professional artists and dance companies as well as yearly participation in The American College Dance Association Conferences.
