Academics (Dance)

Dance at Bates provides a balance of physical practice, creative development and contextual understanding of the art form. Cultural context is explored through courses in dance history, contemporary issues, and dance research and writing, as well as through the experience of dancing. Composition and performance skills are developed through our composition series, performing with the Bates Dance Company, and through a variety of opportunities to present your own choreographic work.  All courses are equally available to majors/minors and non major/minors alike.
