University Majors

University of California, Los Angeles
Dance B.A.

The B.A. in Dance thoroughly integrates learning to dance, learning to make dances, and critical interrogation of dance as a cultural practice. Students study a variety of dance techniques from around the world throughout their studies. They enroll in a four term sequence in dance composition, with additional opportunites to participate in the creation of their own dances as well as working as dancers in the creation of new works by faculty members and visiting artists. They engage in a core of four courses in the study of scholarly discourse around the body and dance, launching a critical inquiry into their own study of bodily practices and internalization of the embodied experience, and how bodily ideas and embodied experiences are interpreted and communicated outwardly and interpersonally, both logically and globally. Preparation for the Major: All preparatory coursework should be completed at UCLA. Substitutions for lower division requirements will be determined by the department in the summer following admission. Syllabi or other descriptive course documetation may be required for consideration. Audition/interview and supplemental requirements: Successful applicants must have strong academic preparation and show evidence of involvement in the arts and community that demonstrates interests in varied cultures. In addition to the general UC Application, applicants must submit a supplemental application and letters of recommendation by digital upload. Additional fees may apply. Applicants to the Dance major will be asked to audition. Specific guidelines may be found at www. arts.ucla.edu/prospective-students.
