Why Consider a Dance Major with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree?
The BFA Program in Dance is a professionally oriented degree, which presumes that students are seriously interested in the process of performing or choreographing and wish to make it their career. The BFA degree is a highly selective program which trains exceptionally committed, disciplined, and talented students to the level at which they might gain entry to a leading graduate, conservatory, or MFA Program, or directly enter one of the areas of the dancing profession.
