Some graduates choose to pursue careers closely related to dance such as performance, education, and choreography. Others choose careers behind the scenes in production or management. Occupations in the fields of arts administration and dance writing are common and many graduates pursue careers as Pilates instructors, dance teachers, managers, or publicists. It is imperative to note that many specialized areas require advanced degrees. Many of our students do pursue graduate studies in a variety of disciplines.
