A dancer jumps over another dancer.

The UNC Greensboro School of Dance invites applications for our resident MFA and MA programs to begin in Fall 2022.

The MFA in Choreography is a three-year, 60-hour program designed to develop and clarify students’ choreographic voices and to deepen understanding of dance-making as a personal, aesthetic, cultural, and social process. The MA in Theories & Practices is a 36-hour program focusing on the investigation of dance through a wide range of areas such as bodily training and cultural and social critique. MFA and MA 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 can also receive support for a fully produced concert in the Dance Theater in the third year. K-12 teaching licensure can be added to these degrees, but more coursework is required.

The diverse 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.  Applications from underrepresented groups, including non-traditional applicants are welcomed.

Applications for the MA and MFA programs are now open at https://vpa.uncg.edu/dance/apply/(opens in new window) under the “Graduate” tab. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2021. Auditions in January 2022 will be virtual. The GRE is not required for entry into these programs.
