Dance as an academic discipline encompasses the role of dance as a performing art, as well as roles in other areas, including education, health, anthropology, history, and the science of human movement.


Bachelor's and graduate degrees in dance and related fields provide a variety of career opportunities in the public and private sectors.

Many four-year colleges and universities offer emphases in areas such as modern dance, ballet, performance, choreography, musical theater, dance education, dance therapy, somatics, dance ethnology, dance history, and criticism. Specialties are also offered in physical therapy for dancers, dance for children, seniors, and special education.
