The Dance BFA program at University of the Arts is one of the top-rated, most diverse undergraduate dance populations in the country. Our location is in the heart of Philadelphia’s thriving art scene. The School of Dance includes a population of approximately 290 talented, self-expressive students and a faculty of individuals whose abilities and experiences are diverse and far-reaching. Apprenticeships, internships and international study cycles are woven into the college experience alongside many choreographic and performance experiences on campus.

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.
