The UNCG School of Dance invites applications for our resident MFA and MA programs to begin in Fall 2021.

The MFA in Choreography is a three-year program designed to help students develop and clarify their choreographic voices. The MA in Theories & Practices can be completed with 36 hours and focuses on the investigation of dance through a wide range of areas such as bodily training and cultural and social critique. MA and MFA dance students work as graduate assistants in a wide variety of roles and teach their own classes as instructors of record in their second and third years. MFA students also receive support for a fully produced concert in the Dance Theater in their third year.

UNCG School of Dance faculty is comprised of accomplished, internationally recognized artists and dance scholars; our MFA alumni teach at various university dance programs throughout the United States, and our MA alumni have gone on to Ph.D. programs at prestigious universities. The School of Dance prides itself on its diverse faculty and student body; we welcome applications from underrepresented groups, including non-traditional applicants.

Applications for the MA and MFA programs are now open at under the “Graduate” tab. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2020. Auditions in January 2021 will be virtual. The GRE is not required for entry into these programs.
