Dance Performance and Technology

The Dance Performance and Technology program is designed for students who plan to enter the field of dance as performers, choreographers, teachers, and multimedia technicians. The program provides classes in dance technique (Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Hip Hop), performance and production as well as training in multimedia production and the application of video and computer technology to dance. Students are offered the opportunity to demonstrate this knowledge by producing a short dance concert focusing on performance, choreography for stage and film, camera techniques, non-linear editing techniques, visual design, lighting design, and original sound design.
