• Mission Statement

    We acknowledge that dance is more than an art form. Through practice and play, we discover the value of dance to foster empathy, creative freedom, and inclusion. We are a community of professional and emerging artists who understand the power of dance to transform the individual in the community.

    We value open-access enrollment, nurturing the whole individual. The program's belief in the interconnectedness of diverse backgrounds, cultures, education, and teaching styles provides self-realized growth among students and faculty. We practice integrating the art form in all its diverse manifestations - societal reform, social justice, arts, education, research, and language.
