Welcome to Dance

The UCI Department of Dance has achieved world-wide recognition for our programs of graduate and undergraduate dance study, centering on performance, choreography, artistic research, scholarship and pedagogy.

Our renowned dance faculty foster a challenging curriculum and an inspiring atmosphere in which performance opportunities, creative projects and theoretical studies complement and reinforce each other. Courses in a wide range of areas give students a strong foundation in the practice and theory of dance. Faculty research projects and engagement with local, national and international communities combine to foster a learning environment for students.  Graduate and undergraduate students create, perform, analyze and study dance from experiential, historical, philosophical and scientific perspectives.
