Bachelor of Arts in Dance

The 45-unit Bachelor of Arts in Dance provides professional preparation in dance and an opportunity to study dance performance, choreography, teaching, and dance theory. The goal of the program is to help students develop strong foundational skills and knowledge necessary for a variety of professional careers. SF State dancers have established their own companies, performed with professional companies, developed careers in kindergarten through grade 12 education or supplemented their education for work in private dance or Pilates studios.

Independent Study Projects (DANC 699)

The School of Theatre and Dance encourages the involvement of students in the vast and diverse professional Bay Area Dance Community. Independent Study, Dance 699, credit may be requested for special study of technique or performance, for returning professionals for continuing work in the field, for research projects and/or community service learning internship in conjunction with a class offered by the SF State dance program (i.e. Dance 560, Dance 340, Dance 300).
