Overview

The B.A. in Dance degree develops the dance skills necessary to perform and a facility in the use of principles and procedures that reflect an intellectual grasp of the art. The degree presents strong potential for interdisciplinary studies and provides the preparation for future graduate study. 

A required core curriculum in the first year emphasizes developing performance skills through the study of technique, and fostering creative abilities through the study of choreography. Other major coursework in dance provides a broad knowledge in dance history, ethnology, kinesiology, music, and the teaching of dance. The B.A. degree offered by Ohio University in dance also offers different possibilities for double majors with other disciplines in Arts and Sciences than the B.F.A. degree in dance.
