At Tufts, dance is a well-established and vibrant part of the
academic, cultural, and community life on campus that includes the
Dance Program in the Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, and the many and
varied extracurricular student dance groups across the university.
We provide two performances per semester. Our Fall and Spring Dance Concerts feature works created in the Dance Repertory & Performance course and advanced choreographic work by faculty and students. Our Fall and Spring Dance Class Mash-Up showcases include students of all levels in our western and non-western dance courses in an informal celebration of their dancing.
Many dance artists and professionals have taught in the program via guest artist residencies. Recent artists have included Dicki Johnson Macy, Fernanda Ghi and Guillermo Merlo, Emily Beattie, Joh Camara, Dean Vollick, Anna Myers, Adam Taub, Jennifer Lin, Andres Giraldo, Andy Taylor-Blennis, Yessenia Fernandez-Selier, Kurt Douglas, Germaul Barnes, Nora Chipaumire, Melody Ruffin Ward, Melissa Alexis, Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer.
Tufts Dance Minors have entered a broad spectrum of professions including, medicine, law, entertainment, and dance therapy. Tufts alumni, such as Art Bridgman, Donald Byrd, Betsy Gregory, and Mitchell Rose, have gone on to become distinguished in the field of dance itself.
While we don't permit prospective students to participate in classes, we'd be happy to speak with you, arrange an observation, or put you in contact with a student Dance Ambassador.
