Dance deepens one’s knowledge and expression of human experience.
We believe in the creative and intellectual potential of each person.
Dance can change the world.

The Dance Department at Wesleyan is a contemporary program with a global perspective. The curriculum centers on the creative act—imagining, making and doing. Our program is interdisciplinary, embodied, collaborative, physically and intellectually rigorous, and fosters personal and social transformation.
