Welcome to Dance

Welcome to the BA Dance degree program at the University of Calgary.  The University of Calgary offers one of only six dance degree programs in Canada.

At the University of Calgary, you may choose to focus your study with either the combined 5 year BA Dance / BKinesiology, the BA Dance with a Concentration in Choreography and Performance, or to pursue 4th year internships for credit with professional companies in our city, including the irrepressible Decidedly Jazz Danceworks.

The dance faculty take the training of dancers very seriously. Without dancers, there is no dance profession: no teachers, no choreographers, no dance historians, no dance critics and so the list goes on. Our dance faculty members are extremely dedicated and deeply committed to the training of young dancers.

Dance speaks of the human spirit; it connects us to our emotional intelligence, to our passion for life and human expression; it allows us to fully experience ourselves; it heightens our senses and sharpens our perceptions. We offer you the opportunity to experience the joys and passions of this rich and compelling art form at the University of Calgary and we hope that the years you spend with us in the B.A. dance program will be exciting, challenging and fruitful.

Courses for Non Majors
