The heart of the UVM Dance lies in modern/contemporary dance. Practice and theory are embedded in all dance courses. Students learn applied knowledge in the art of dance through courses in contemporary dance technique, improvisation, composition, site-based performance, and participation in yearly performances. Students also critically examine dance in courses that emphasize history, cultural traditions, and creative research. Courses in ballet, hip hop, musical theatre dance, and a wide variety of world dance forms provide students with the opportunity to learn about a broad spectrum of dance forms.
