Department of Dance at UNC Charlotte

It is the mission of the Department of Dance to prepare students for dance and theatre related fields by integrating excellence in instruction and artistic creativity within a broad professional landscape. Thus, the Departments seek to define themselves as a cultural laboratory which engage the university, the community of scholars, the performing arts industry, and the world.


Within the Department of Dance, students are encouraged to explore the theoretical foundations and aesthetics of both disciplines though a series of cross-disciplinary courses, as well as discipline-specific courses. While receiving a foundation in dance and theatre, students also gain skills that allow them to achieve career goals, encourage life-long learning, and enrich their quality of life. Students gain practical experience through performance and technical assignments in the department’s production season. Faculty members are committed to the teaching and practice of dance and theatre as they foster academic progress and artistic expression in an environment that encourages and respects cultural and artistic diversity. In addition they contribute to the university, the community and their professions through scholarly and creative endeavors.
