What are good liberal arts colleges with good dance programs?


I am going to college soon and wondered if there were any good college dance programs (i.e. a lot of classes, great teachers, including contemporary dance – things like that) in a liberal arts college. I don’t want to go to a huge school but I still want a good dance education as well as good academics. I know I’m picky, but if you know any schools, let me know!




julliard. but you have to be sht good to get in there.


If you are looking for a BA Then schools like Goucher or Eugene Lang New School. Barnard has a nice Dance program too.
Although it is a large school, my daughter is a grad of NYU Tisch and has a BFA from their dance program. The dance department is very small however. They only take 30 dancers into the Freshman class. NYU has great academics as you already know. Juilliard has rather poor academics in case you were wondering.
I suggest you look at Dance Magazines College Guide. They list all the schools that offer dance programs and gives you information about what they offer. There are really a lot of good choices out there.
