Dance Education, MA

The Dance Education Master of Arts (a Dance Educator Intensive program) is an academically rigorous program examining the philosophical, theoretical and practical implications in the field of dance education. In this program, students will reflect on current best practice application of movement in K-12 education in the realm of dance performance/choreography/technique as well as dance integration within other content areas. Exploration of advocacy strategies and methods will also be considered.

This master's program was designed with online delivery in the academic Fall and Spring plus summer workshops to fit into the schedules of current and aspiring dance educators. The summer face to face workshops will include courses on choreography and learning dance forms.
The Dance Education Master of Arts program begins in the Fall of each academic year. A minimum of eight and a maximum of fifteen students will be admitted each year. Applicants must apply by April 1; selections will be made by the end of April.
