Students in the UCI Dance Department discover that performance opportunities, creative projects and theoretical studies complement and reinforce each other. This is a supportive educational environment for students to create, perform, analyze and study dance from historical, philosophical and scientific perspectives.
Courses cover dance history, critical issues in dance, research methods, kinesiology, injury prevention and dance science, choreography, video technology, and more.
There are ample opportunities for dance students to perform at UC Irvine. Each year the department presents five fully mounted, on-stage dance concerts. Two are choreographed by faculty and guest artists; two are choreographed by graduate students; the fifth concert is created by undergraduate students. In addition, informal showings held every quarter are open to all faculty and students.
Students benefit from exposure to many styles and approaches and the result is a stimulating, well-rounded educational experience.
The Department of Dance fosters an educational environment in which performance opportunities, creative projects, and theoretical studies complement and reinforce each other, providing a foundation for careers in dance.
