The Dance program of Rutgers University offers working dance professionals the opportunity to study with award-winning dance artists, scholars, and educators.


About the Program

The Dance program of Rutgers University focuses on developing interdisciplinary praxis where dance performance, creativity, and pedagogy become integrated with studies in other art forms and theoretical studies.

Guided by the belief that dance is a fundamental embodied practice for understanding the human condition in a globalized context, the degree establishes students as creatively literate world citizens who can develop interdisciplinary solutions to address complex contemporary issues.

Our interdisciplinary approach is the hallmark of the MFA in dance at Mason Gross School of the Arts.
