Overview

The major and minor in Dance at Pomona College explore the movement and beauty of the human body through modern and non-Western dance, ballet, composition, repertory and performance—involving elements of theatre, music, design and the visual arts.

Learning outcomes

Students choose one of two areas of emphasis: Performance Studies or Movement Studies. In the performance emphasis, you’ll study technique at the advanced level culminating in a senior choreography/performance project; in movement studies, you’ll combine their work in dance with other disciplines.

Dance students develop and refine concentration skills, observational and analytical abilities, and capacities for working with broad aesthetic concepts and fine details while developing their creative instincts.
