Moving with the world

WWU Dance students are immersed in physical practice and artistic process of technique, choreography and performance.


Our study highlights contemporary dance, ballet technique, anatomy and kinesiology, partnering, dance for the camera, dance history, and in-depth study of choreography and creative process.


Throughout the year, faculty and students develop relationships with internationally known guest artists.
