Bachelor of Arts

Students majoring in dance at Winthrop University will experience a program that encourages a breadth of knowledge that includes many different styles of dance. All dance majors have opportunities to assume artistic leadership roles during their academic careers in the department. Advanced students take on solo performance roles, stage management positions, and choreograph pieces in student concerts. Very few undergraduate programs offer these many opportunities for students to perform, design, direct, choreograph, stage manage, and run productions.

Beyond Graduation

Kaila Dockal
Dance, Class of 2016

“My degree from Winthrop has provided me with many opportunities post-graduation. It allowed me to work for an amazing dance and cirque company, Caroline Calouche & Co. Because my degree is in dance and education, it allowed me to dance professionally as well as do educational outreach work for the same company. Along with this, I have connected with other dancers who attended Winthrop before I went there. This allowed me to create relationships with other Winthrop Alumni and bond over our shared experiences. The best experience at Winthrop that has impacted my career was participating in the dance performances. I was provided many opportunities to perform at Winthrop in shows such as
Winthrop Dance Theater, Junior Showcase, Senior Showcase and Winthrop Repertory group. Participating in all of these performance opportunities allowed me to refine my craft by finessing my dance and performance skills.”

Winthrop dance graduates are prepared to pursue careers with resident dance companies, national touring groups, theme parks, local arts councils, and schools. Dance alumni also pursue graduate degrees at prestigious institutions throughout the U.S.
