MFA in Dance: Embodied Interdisciplinary Praxis

equipping the imagination for social transformation

Duke University launches a new MFA in Dance program starting Fall 2019. We are currently accepting applications.

Duke University’s new 2-year, full-time MFA in Dance is dedicated to embodied knowledge and committed to practice-led movement discourses in the service of the society. Open to artist-students with expertise in all forms of movement practice from any culture or geographical area, the MFA not only encourages, it requires substantial study in related disciplines chosen from Duke’s many outstanding graduate programs. In addition, during the first summer term, MFA students will incorporate and contribute to the richness of the American Dance Festival experience.
