We offer a close-knit artistic and intellectual community of dance students and outstanding faculty from all walks of dance life. We also bring in several guest artists every year-including dancers and choreographers from such companies as the American Ballet Theater, the Erick Hawkins Dance Company, the New York City Ballet, and the José Limón Company, and postmodern artists such as Doug Varone, Sara Pearson, and Patrik Widrig-to charge the atmosphere of the dance department with the energy and fresh ideas of the broader dance world.
