Featured Courses

Dance by Design

This masters level course allows students to utilize skills developed in previous dance courses to explore further the elements of dance and how they can be used for expression, storytelling, entertainment, and visual effect. Techniques to nurture the individual creative process are explored through improvisation and movement. Students both collaborate and work individually to design original dance compositions in the styles of their choice. They also learn tools for effectively understanding and analyzing dance through the study of noteworthy choreographers throughout history.

Dance for Athletes I

Hone your skills as an athlete while learning to appreciate the art of dance. Through the application of a variety of dance principles and styles, both male and female students work to increase agility, strength, balance, flexibility, and cardiorespiratory endurance. While designed with athletes in mind, this course is also beneficial to anyone looking for a creative way to enhance their physical fitness. 

Music Video Dance II

This course further explores the art of dance in the context of music videos. Students learn more advanced sequences of choreography at a faster pace; they also explore movement dynamics and musicality on a deeper level. Additionally, this course provides students the opportunity to develop their own choreographic voices by collaborating to create an original music video.
