What to Expect
As a student in our program, you’ll begin with dance technique coursework and choreography before shifting to kinesiology for Case Western Reserve’s Dancer Wellness Program—the first graduate-level program of its kind in the U.S. Developed by the two award-winning faculty who still teach here today, the Dancer Wellness Program will help you build strength so your skills as a dancer are en pointe.
We accept a limited number of students each year so we can keep the program small and customizable. We strive to have diverse cohorts—which we strongly believe enhance the quality of peer-to-peer education.
As you go through this 30-credit hour program, you’ll have the option to stay on the MA track or shift to a Master of Fine Arts in Contemporary Dance depending on your academic and career goals. Or, like many students, you might choose to pursue a PhD in dance to set yourself up for a career in teaching.
