What You’ll Learn
Our comprehensive liberal arts education in dance includes rich experiences from studio to stage.
With ample performance and choreographic opportunities, the major is designed for you to pursue interests outside of the department and give you the option to double major. Brockport’s seamless integration of BA/BS and BFA students forms a warm community of diverse dance artists as versatile movers and interdisciplinary thinkers. Brockport Dance is committed to your education as a whole person and well-rounded human being.
Improve your skills as a dance practitioner, choreographer, and performer while broadening your education. We offer options to:
- Double major in any degree at the University.
- Take contemporary modern, choreography, or ballet in one of five large studios.
- Perform in two dedicated dance theatres.
- Present your research at Scholar’s Day on the intersection of dance and your other area of interest.
- Study anatomy in our conditioning lab with special equipment.
Becoming a dance major is a two-part process:
Double Major with Dance
You’ll have ample opportunity to grow on and off stage. Faculty personally advise you, and help you tailor your education to your individual interests. At Brockport, you can continue to pursue your love for dance AND develop yourself as an exercise scientist, journalist or microbiologist, just to name a few.
Perform in repertory led by our faculty members and visiting artists. Four student-choreographed shows per year provide all qualified students with performance and production experiences. Two of our most popular performance groups include DANSCORE and Sankofa, the touring African Dance and Drum ensemble.
A dance major prepares you for anything. Our alumni are professional dancers, choreographers, teachers, physical therapists, dance writers, and arts administrators.
Our faculty will help you identify your interests and strengthen your skills based on your personal career goals. You’ll build professional skills while developing vibrant relationships with active professionals.
