The University of Montana Dance Program provides an environment in which students are challenged academically and encouraged to develop as artists and teachers, grounded in tradition while exploring new territory and engaging in their community and world.
Our mission is to inspire and prepare open-minded graduates to enter the professional world as performers, choreographers, and teachers. The foundation of our program is in modern/contemporary dance; however, excellent instruction is provided in ballet technique and a variety of other dance forms including jazz, tap, and African dance. We encourage creative thinkers who are articulate about their work, technically adept, and are developing a personal voice.
The Dance Program is a close-knit community of dancers with a supportive, engaged faculty. Our program is innovative and small enough to provide ongoing personal feedback for dance majors. The program offers multiple choreographic, performance and teaching opportunities for undergraduate dance majors both on campus and in the greater Missoula community.
