The University of Colorado Boulder offers a well-established, nationally recognized dance program that encourages the pursuit of one’s artistic voice, embodied scholarship, and pedagogical exploration. We are a contemporary dance program—one that values and provides study in a range of styles and fusion of forms that influence and reflect the multifaceted nature of concert dance and dance inside culture.

Our curriculum is designed to use dance and the body to challenge assumptions about practices, values, technology, sustainability and personal and global positionality. Our program scaffolds entrepreneurial approaches to art-making based in personal initiative, curiosity, and versatility.

We support the vital cultivation of self-awareness alongside a nuanced appreciation of one’s positionality within the global conversation. Somatic studies serves as the integrative tissue in our highly diverse and forward-thinking program.
