If you want to step out of the classroom and onto the stage, there’s no better place to train for your time in the spotlight than with the University of St. Thomas. Whether your dream is to perform with a professional dance company, choreograph for stage and screen, or teach the arts to the next generation of talent, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from UST can help you get there.
You’ll benefit from faculty experienced in all levels of dance, plus UST’s close connections with professional dance companies in Houston. In one of the largest, most diverse metros in the country, you’ll learn from guest artists, form professional connections with industry professionals and lay the groundwork for graduate work in dance, kinesiology and similar fields.
Admission to the BFA Major requires an audition, but all students are welcome to inquire about taking courses as part of their credit hours towards a UST degree.
The Dance major has concentrations in Ballet, Contemporary, and Global & Urban.
Recommended hours: 15-18 credit hours in Ballet, 15-18 in Modern, and 3-9 in Jazz, Global or Urban Dance Forms.
