The University of Montana Dance Program provides a vibrant environment in which students are challenged academically and encouraged to develop as artists and teachers. Instruction is grounded in tradition while exploring new territory and engaging in their community and the world.
Our mission is to inspire and prepare open-minded graduates to enter the professional world as performers, choreographers, and teachers. The foundation of our program is in modern/contemporary dance; however excellent instruction is provided in ballet technique and jazz, improvisation, and world dance forms. We encourage creative thinkers who are articulate about their work, technically adept and are developing a personal voice.
The Dance Program is a close-knit community of dancers with a supportive, engaged faculty. Our program is innovative and small enough to provide ongoing personal feedback for dance majors. We offer multiple choreographic and teaching opportunities for undergraduate dance majors both on campus and in the greater Missoula community. Come join us!
