Overview

The Dance concentration at Bard College at Simon's Rock is designed for students interested in exploring and analyzing dance from any of the following perspectives: As a performance art, a reflection of a culture and a historical period, as a form of therapy, as an anatomical activity, or in relation to and in combination with other arts. 

Learning outcomes

Students are required to take classes that foster creativity, expand movement vocabulary, improve technical skills, and provide tools with which to describe dance formally. Dance concerts at the end of each semester in the Daniel Arts Center’s McConnell Theater provide opportunities for choreographers, performers, composers, theater technicians, and costume and lighting designers. In addition, students may organize their own performances in the Dance Studio, the Liebowitz Black Box Theater, and the performance space in the Livingston Hall Student Union.
