Guided by collaborative partnerships with teachers and scholars, opportunities to engage prominent dance artists, as well as participation with the diverse cultural and dance communities of Los Angeles and beyond, LMU Dance prepares students for a variety of career paths in dance and related areas of professional engagement.
The Dance program of Loyola Marymount University provides a strong, unified learning community that works with deep intention, cooperation, and flexible engagement in performance, scholarship, choreography, and social action.
Housed in the Department of Theater Arts and Dance, the Dance Program offers coursework for the dance major, the dance minor, and the general student population who wish to pursue dance as part of the core curriculum, as electives, and for the purposes of a liberal arts education.
The dance major curriculum builds upon the foundation of Dance as an art form and a humanistic experience. Studio and theory coursework are designed to integrate practical dance experience with more formal academic study so that the student is educated as a dancer who can perform, write, and speak about the art of Dance and dancing.
