About

The University of North Carolina Greensboro MA in Dance - Theories and Practices is a 36-hour degree. Options are available in Dance Education with or without licensure for teaching in public schools. The MA in Dance Education is available in a largely online-based distance format.

Overview

University of North Carolina Greensboro graduate programs in dance offer rich experiences in artistry and scholarship that entwine practice, creative expression, and critical investigation. Understanding arises from opportunities to investigate dancing through experiential and analytical lenses such as bodily training, improvisation, performance, choreography, aesthetics, education, somatics, history, and cultural and social critique.

Our Dance - Theories and Practices students work with faculty members who are active artists and scholars, and who mentor student engagement in the dance professions, as well as guiding their work in the department. 

We offer an exceptionally strong mentorship program in teaching, including the teaching of dance technique, choreography and performance, dance appreciation and history, and the theories and practices of dance teaching in public education. We prepare students for lifelong learning in dance, to integrate practice and critical investigation, and to engage in dance as a means of understanding and of enacting positive change in themselves and their communities.
