CSU Dance: State of Movement

The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance empowers students to create, collaborate, innovate, and inspire. Through teaching, creative artistry, research, advocacy, and service, we elevate arts education.

Through rigorous technical and artistic investigation, embodied practice, and progressive pedagogy, Colorado State University Dance empowers students to be engaged, reflective, and resilient citizens. In keeping with our land-grant values, we strive to inspire and lead creative collaborations on campus and beyond through our comprehensive dance practices.

The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance offers a competitive education training center that prepares majors for professional careers in the field of dance. Dance students explore the many possibilities for movement expression, along with creativity and scholarly examination, in a challenging and supportive environment. In addition to regular training in ballet and modern dance technique, the curriculum requires performance, choreography, pedagogy, production, and academic coursework. Numerous performance opportunities include six separate productions each year and regular guest artist residencies and master classes.

Students across the university are encouraged to audition for placement for performances and dance classes; auditions are held each semester.
