Contemporary Movement Practice
Under the direction of Donna Faye Burchfield, the school has developed a curriculum that offers the depth and rigor of a discipline-based dance conservatory, while engaging students in open discussions within their own practice and valuing their voices as capable of developing new and critical perspectives in dance. These strategies give way to student-driven pathways and expand the ways students can access and think about the practices and techniques of making and performing dance.
