Preparing Students for Success
The Dance Program at The University of Akron's School of Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration offers students traditional technical training combined with an academic program leading to a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree in Dance, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Dance Education, or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Dance with a Business Cognate. These degrees prepare students for:
- performing careers;
- graduate studies in the fields related to dance such as arts administration, dance history, physical therapy, dance therapy, dance education or dance ethnology; and
- teaching careers in private studios.
A fifth-year option is available in which students can be licensed to teach dance in public schools, grades pre-K through 12.
The University of Akron is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD).
