About

The Barnard College Department of Dance at Columbia University, located in a world dance capital, offers an interdisciplinary program that integrates the study of dance within a liberal arts setting of intellectual and creative exploration.

Overview

The Dance major at Columbia University builds upon studio courses, the Department's productions at Miller Theater, New York Live Arts, and other venues, as well as a rich array of dance studies courses, allowing students' creative work to develop in dialogue with critical inquiry into the history, culture, theory and forms of western and non-western performance, typically enhanced by study in other disciplines. 

Key Features 

  • Students work with accomplished artists whose work enriches contemporary American dance; they also study with outstanding research scholars.
  • Making, thinking about, and writing about art are an essential part of the liberal arts education. For this reason, the Department of Dance at Columbia University offers technique courses for students of all levels of expertise, while opening its other courses to majors and non-majors alike, who may also audition for its productions. 
  • The Department partners with cultural institutions in New York City to connect students with the professional world.

Programme Structure

  • Ballet, I: Beginning
