In addition to preparing dancers for placement in prestigious graduate programs the dance department has produced graduates of high caliber who have experienced a diversity of performing and creative opportunities.
Our campus is home to three state-of-the-art dance studios and two concert performance halls for our dancers’ use. We also house a library of Congress on Research in Dance and the Journal of Dance Education/RDE Database.

“The SUU dance program helped me develop not only as a performer and craftsman, but also as an inventor and thinker. I credit SUU with providing, thanks to gifted professors, a sound base in ballet and modern technique; I was also introduced to tap, jazz and improvisation. While offering residences with an eclectic mix of dance professionals, as well as annual trips to ACDF, SUU instilled in me a confidence to pursue dance as a successful livelihood, and I am currently in my fourth year with STREB Extreme Action in New York City.”
