Trustees Approve a Degree in Master of Fine Arts in Dance
From Duke Today, 12/2/2017: "...the trustees approved a degree in Master of Fine Arts in Dance: Embodied Interdisciplinary Praxis. The program is open to all forms of dance and human movement -- artistic, aesthetic, social and therapeutic. Moreover, it will provide an exclusive collaboration with the American Dance Festival, which is based in Durham.
The new MFA seeks to attract dance artists who recognize the potential of all forms of creativity, be it traditional, contemporary or experimental. The Dance Program will accept seven students each year, leading to 14 graduate students enrolled in the MFA program at any given time.
The new Rubenstein Arts Center, which opens next month, will house the Dance Program with two state-of-the-art dance studios and offices for faculty and staff."
