The Department of Theatre & Dance

The Dance program endeavors to create knowledgeable and skillful dancers, guiding student academic and career goals to align with student affinities and abilities

The mission of the Dance Program at The University of New Mexico is to promote healthy physical practices in dance, encourage artistic exploration that can successfully encompass interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches to performance, enhance critical thinking skills that connect theory and practice and offer an educational landscape that develops multicultural academic and artistic perspective.

The vision of the program is to provide the most current, experimental, and sophisticated choreography curriculum and productions in the southwest, and to explore and value the rich tradition of dance history as a living legacy for the contemporary artist/scholar. The program promotes and utilizes national and international faculty connections for student academic and professional experience.
