About the Event
The BFA training program at TISCH SCHOOL OF THE ARTS is a comprehensive, organic approach to dance. Students earn their degree through an intensive three-year plus two-summer curriculum. First-year coursework focuses on learning to dance in the most efficient and healthy way. Technique classes emphasize placement and alignment principles. Additional coursework includes dance composition, kinesthetics of anatomy, and music theory.
The second year develops these principles with courses in dance history, acting, improvisation, music literature, and advanced dance composition: tools acquired in music and composition classes in the first year are now integrated into a course involving phrase manipulation as it applies to choreography.
The third year focuses on integrating the previous years of training into staged performance and choreography. Third year students gain professional dance experience as ensemble members of Tisch’s Second Avenue Dance Company.
Elective courses are available to students with specific areas of interests. Along with departmental work, students take required academic courses throughout their stay in the program. Transfer students must complete all department requirements.
Join us for this modern dance class with the department chair, Sean Curran!
