Description The new MFA in Dance Program: Choreography | Collaboration | Creation, truly reflects the way many contemporary artists are working. This student-centered intensive two-year program requires that you, with other graduate students from a wide-range of disciplines and diverse skill-sets, form collaborative teams, successfully creating, producing and presenting your own work. The program will provide you with the theoretical and technical knowledge necessary to create multi-disciplinary performance art. You will find encouragement for the integration of digital media and leading-edge interactive technologies with live performance from both the faculty and your fellow students. During your first-year, you will be taking ‘critical-skill’ courses.
