The CCBC Dance Program offers a rigorous program of dance technique, creative courses, performance opportunities and strong dance academics.

The mission of the Dance Program is to inspire students to participate in all aspects of dance as an art form and to foster the artistic, intellectual and spiritual growth of dancers by instilling in them a commitment to artistic and personal excellence. We provide students with opportunities to experience and learn about a broad spectrum of dance including: classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, choreography, jazz, tap, hip hop and global dance forms. Students will learn and develop the physical, artistic and technical skills necessary to communicate through dance and to articulate their knowledge of dance.

The dance program is housed in two studios in the Wellness Building on the Essex campus. Both studios have recently installed American Harlequin sprung flooring and marley surface, internet access with smart carts and video projectors, multi input-sound systems and ballet barres.

All Dance Majors or prospective Dance Majors are required to meet with the Dance Coordinator prior to the beginning of a new semester. All Dance Majors are advised by the full time dance faculty.

The UMBC Department of Dance offers challenging and innovative instruction in technique, performance, history, composition, dance and technology, and production. The program integrates the study of dance as a discipline within a liberal arts program. Our program develops the “whole” dancer, integrating the physical with the intellectual, and the analytical with the expressive. Students train in a wide range of styles with core faculty and visiting artists, gaining new perspectives about the changing world of contemporary dance. Our goal is to produce unique dance artists who move beautifully, and have something to “say” as dancers and choreographers. We challenge our students to perform to their fullest potential, to test their limits as choreographers, and to question and think critically about dance.

The Department is dedicated to providing opportunities for students at all levels of skill to study dance. The department prepares future dancers, choreographers, educators and scholars, through a core curriculum that includes traditional and experimental techniques, creative exploration, historical and aesthetic context, technology, and production skills. Students may become certified to teach dance through a dual program administered by the Department of Dance and the Department of Education.

UMBC is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Dance.
