The best of a world-class liberal arts research university
The MFA in Dance: Embodied Interdisciplinary Praxis is a 2-year, full-time terminal degree in dance that was launched in 2019.
We guide students through practice-based, interdisciplinary research in the service of society. We don't just encourage substantial study in related disciplines. We require it.
In addition to training alongside our acclaimed dance faculty, our students take advantage of Duke's outstanding graduate programs in the humanities, area studies, public policy and elsewhere—all to create projects that use dance as a lens for exploring the human experience.
