The Dance Concentrations

With the three concentrations, dance majors graduate with skills to pursue graduate degrees in dance; careers in choreography and performance; research in science, somatics and arts therapies; professions in dance education and community engagement; and graduate degrees in history, theory and criticism. Students may also create their own concentration supported by the Five College dance department curriculum
