The Modern Dance Teaching BFA is a four-year professional degree that prepares students to teach dance in a variety of dynamic and challenging learning environments. Here in the College of Fine Arts, we are committed to the teaching and learning of all humans in our educational and community spaces. The Modern Dance Teaching BFA prepares elementary, junior high, middle school, and high school dance educators. Competent K-12 dance teaching requires both in-depth knowledge of subject matter (dance) and skill in applying educational concepts and principles that are developmentally appropriate.
