Support the Department of Dance

The Department of Dance at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts fosters an educational environment in which performance opportunities, creative projects, and theoretical studies complement and reinforce each other, providing a foundation for careers in dance. The program focuses on the dance techniques of ballet, modern, jazz, tap, world dance, and dance and technology. Theoretical studies include dance history and theory; dance writing; Laban studies; dance pedagogy; dance ethnography; dance science; and aesthetics of digital media.

Creative opportunities bridge the studio and theoretical work through performance and choreography for multiple contexts.

Your support allows us to create and maintain exceptional dance education and UCI.
