Department of Dance
Dance at Webster . . .
Welcome to Webster University's Department of Dance in The Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts where dancers experience excellence in training through a strong ballet foundation in both the BA and BFA Degrees, exploring a broad spectrum of concert dance forms that include traditional classical ballet, risk-taking modern dance, and theatrical jazz and tap.
Acceptance to the Department of Dance as a degree-seeking student is by audition. Dance Majors choose to emphasize in either Ballet or Modern, but receive a thorough understanding of the world of dance. The goal of the department is to prepare students for professional careers in performance, choreography, private instruction, and for entrance into master of fine arts (MFA) programs.
By challenging dancers to strive for mastery of their discipline, nurturing the uniqueness of each individual student, and promoting versatility as a vital necessity for artistic success in today's global community, Webster Dance strives to create tomorrow's dance-artists today!
