Dance Program education and training includes half-credit courses focused on technique and performance across a variety of dance forms. We also offer a holistic range of full credit courses that explore the creative process of making dances in specific contexts, and that integrate movement-based inquiry with scholarly discourse on dance and embodied knowledge across arts and non-arts disciplines. A maximum total of four course credits (made up of partial credit courses) in technique and performance courses may count toward the thirty-four courses required for graduation from Duke. If you need special accommodations with your course schedule or course load in order to take a technique or a performance class, see the DANCE 280 overview or Performance Contract option.
Professionals/community members and non-Duke university students may also register for Duke Dance Program courses.
