Master of Fine Arts in Dance: Embodied Interdisciplinary Praxis

The MFA in Dance endeavors to cultivate new forms of movement as well as choreographic engagements with the lived environment through critical thinking, artistic activity and scholarly enquiry in a unique research-based program that aspires to foster collaborations across disciplines in the training of sophisticated and creative art practitioners. Predominantly characterized by individually tailored study programs, the MFA in Dance will allow students to design their chosen direction of inquiry. Students will be drawn into a rigorous peer-to-peer learning environment with an abundance of external stimulation and inspiration. Open to all forms of movement practice, the MFA in Dance at Duke expects its students to become leaders in the social and politically relevant developments in the expanded fields of dance and choreography.
