Contemporary Dance is Moving to Theatre!
As of July 1, 2013, IU Contemporary Dance will reside in the newly renamed Department of Theatre and Dance (currently the Department of Theatre and Drama). Students matriculating in the fall of 2014 will earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. We are very excited about our new home and all the tremendous opportunities collaborating with our theatre colleagues will bring!
Beginning Summer Session 2013, all dance courses will be located under Theatre and Drama in the College of Arts and Sciences, and will be listed as THTR-D.
To celebrate the IU Men's Basketball team competing in the NCAA, the IU Alumni Association made the "Let's Dance!" picture below. Although it was designed for Facebook, we felt it would go very well on our page. Let's dance indeed!!!!
The IU Contemporary Dance Program offers a collection of dance experiences that are accessible to students who seek serious study in the art of dance. The program's core offerings consist of curricula which, through the highest quality of training and instruction, strengthen and refine contemporary dance technique as well as provide scholarly inquiry into the history, science and aesthetics of dance. The faculty of the IU Contemporary Dance Program strives to not only teach, but mentor, and provide a strong theoretical base from which each dancer can grow and work as an individual artist. Students are encouraged to seek their own venue for expression, such as performance, choreography, teaching, production or scholarship, and prepare for a successful career in the professional and academic field of dance.
