This is because we understand artistry and teaching as symbiotic by nature. The individual’s own evolving artistic knowledge is the foundation from which we encourage the development of a dance teaching practice as a new channel of artistic inquiry. Grappling with how to transform artistic knowledge into meaningful learning experiences for others is what is at the heart of graduate study in our program.
Enriched by a unique partnership between the Graduate School of Education, New Jersey's premier college conservatory, Mason Gross School of the Arts, and partnerships with schools and professional agencies, the Dance Education Program from Rutgers University is a nationally accredited degree program and a model of excellence for the preparation of dance educators. Students finish the program with a solid education degree, a teaching portfolio, the option for K-12 dance teacher certification and multiple career options or advancement within dance and the education field.
The vision of the Dance Education Program is to sustain a community of artist-teacher-learners committed to developing the diverse, creative voices of children, adolescents, and young adults. At the foundation of this is a belief that young people have important artistic insights to contribute within a wide spectrum of dance artistry. The focus of graduate study is to examine methods of revealing, developing, and advocating for the artistic identities of our nation’s young people in contexts such as PK-12 schools, pre-professional programs, dance companies, community programs, and university networks.
