Dance



Dance

The Department of Dance offers two undergraduate degree programs that lead to a bachelor's degree in dance: the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance (Performance and Choreography/Contemporary) and the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Dance. Also available is a minor in Somatics.

Admission and Retention Requirements

Admission Requirements for the Dance BFA and BA and the Inter-Arts Dual Discipline
Please see uwm.edu/arts/apply for information on admission starting spring 2017.

Students must meet general university admission requirements to be admitted to any of the undergraduate curricula as a freshman or transfer student. Passing the Dance Entrance Audition (on-campus or video) is required for entrance into the Dance BA or BFA degree programs.

On-campus auditions consist of a variety of technique classes, writing sample, one-minute solo performance (can be self-choreographed), and Q&A session. Video submission (only with prior authorization via email to dance-admission@uwm.edu) consists of writing sample, 5 minutes each of two contrasting dance techniques, and 2-3 minutes of performance video (DVD or URLs in online form). Auditions after the last on-campus audition will be by appointment or via video submission. If unsuccessful, students may re-audition, but are limited to auditioning twice per academic year (via any method).

To RSVP for a specific audition date, or to submit the video audition form (after authorization), prospective students must: (a) complete the appropriate online form at arts.uwm.edu/dance/admission and (b) submit separate copies of their high school and/or college transcripts (unofficial copies are acceptable for this purpose). Transcripts and/or video footage should be sent to dance-admission@uwm.edu or UWM Dance Admission, P.O. Box 413, Milwaukee, WI  53201.

UWM priority application deadline is March 1.

Transfer students must complete a minimum of half of the required dance credits while in residence at UWM in order to graduate. The exact total is available upon admission to the program. Transcript evaluation by a dance advisor is required before placement into dance major courses.

Once accepted, students may enter the program during either fall or spring semesters, but are strongly encouraged to enter in the fall term to progress more smoothly through the BA or BFA curricular sequence.

Each undergraduate dance major's coursework will be reviewed at the end of his/her sophomore year to determine continuance in the major, as part of the Mid-Program Portfolio Review. Students must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in the dance major.

All students are expected to demonstrate a strong commitment to their health and overall conditioning in order to fulfill the department's academic requirements. Each student's ability to undertake the demands of the dance program, including his/her overall physical ability to perform in classes, auditions, rehearsals, and/or performances, will be a factor in the following: grading at the end of each semester; the audition/rehearsal/performance process for departmental productions and outreach events; the Mid-Program Portfolio Review assessment; determining "probation" status; and potentially removing a student from the program.

Admission Requirements for the Somatics Minor

Students must meet general university admission requirements to be admitted to any of the undergraduate curricula as a freshman or transfer student. Prior to completing 6-8 credits of the Somatics Minor coursework, students must apply for and be accepted into the minor. Application consists of: a) online application at uwm.edu/arts/apply/ click on Somatics Minor and b) submission of unofficial UWM transcript via email to somatic-minor@uwm.edu. No more than 6-8 credits (2-3 courses) will be applied toward the minor until after a student has been admitted and a Dance Faculty Advisor has been assigned.

Scholarships

The Dance Department distributes around $15-20,000 in scholarships and awards to undergraduate students each year, ranging from $400-2000 per year (amount split over fall/spring semesters, summer available upon request). Students may be awarded multiple awards over their time in the Dance Program. uwm.edu/arts/scholarships/

  1. Incoming Student Award: no application required; award is faculty-nominated based on the student's entrance audition for admission to the program. Scholarships may not be available after the UWM priority application deadline (March 1). Award may be for one year only, or for up to four years, as long as the student continues to meet the stated requirements.
  2. Dance Undergraduate Student Scholarship: application required, and students must have completed at least one semester of the Dance Program. Demonstrated excellence in the Dance Major is the main criteria.
  3. Ed Burgess Legacy Scholarship: no application required; award is faculty-nominated for a student who will have junior or senior status who embodies and demonstrates the highest qualities of commitment and professional dedication to the art of dance, and has an established record of excellence in all aspects of the program. Award is for one year only, and student must have completed at least 2 semesters in the Dance Program, and be attending full-time during the award semesters.

To be eligible for any Dance Scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Full-time enrollment (6 or more Dance credits each semester)
  • Dance GPA of 3.5 or above
  • Adherence to departmental curricular requirements
  • Students who do not meet these criteria for all semesters of their award may forfeit all or part of their scholarship.

Laptops

Dance BA and BFA students are required to have a laptop computer (or comparable tablet meeting minimum specifications) by the beginning of their sophomore year, but are strongly encouraged to have one when they enter the program. The hardware and software must meet or exceed the current departmental requirements, as stated on the website (uwm.edu/arts/apply/laptop/) and in the Dance Undergraduate Student Handbook. Website also includes information on using financial aid to fund this expense.


Dance Program Mission Statement and Program Descriptions

The Department of Dance at UWM is committed to the development and training of skillful and vibrant dance artists and educators in their pursuit of a comprehensive education built upon diverse dance practices, research, and community engagement. Our department supports a thriving local and regional presence, while it opens avenues and opportunities for national and global perspectives. We offer undergraduate and graduate programs that emphasize artistic individuality and the development of the professional skills required for successful careers in dance performance, choreography, and education. Our innovative curriculum integrates multiple dance disciplines and somatic practices, creating a learning environment that prioritizes a balance of body and mind knowledge with informed, creative expression. 

We offer an eclectic yet dynamic and encompassing curriculum, with specialized degree programs that include MFA in Dance, BFA in Dance (Contemporary Performance & Choreography), BFA in Inter-Arts: Dual Discipline Track, BA in Dance, and a Minor in Somatics.  Our training environment consists of full-time faculty, lecturers, and guest artists who reflect strong beliefs in multiple points of view, a passionate commitment to individual development, and dedication to serving the versatile interests of our students. Renowned guest artists contribute to the dance department’s curriculum each semester by providing students direct experience with current and diverse global practices in the field. These programs ensure that we offer our students directed, relevant training as the foundation for successful and sustainable careers in dance and related fields.

The creative research of both the faculty and students reflects our commitment to investigate the historical and cultural relevance of contemporary and traditional world dance forms. These pursuits ensure that we examine and support the vibrancy of cultural traditions while generating new knowledge. Intertwining creativity, scholarship, and interdisciplinary dialogue, our program is dedicated to the exploration and development of somatic inquiry, technology integration, critical thought, and original choreography.

The Performance and Choreography/Contemporary Track in the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Dance prepares students to perform and create original dance choreography for theatrical productions. Dance BFA students complete a rigorous technical and creative curriculum designed to develop the student's individual artistic voice. Contemporary Track majors additionally study body/mind sciences, dance pedagogy, historical and cultural contexts for dance, and the interactive collaboration skills necessary to bring dance to the theatre with a high degree of excellence.

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Dance prepares students to teach participatory movement traditions in community settings, and to lead community groups in creating and performing their own dances and movement rituals. Community-based service-learning experiences provide many opportunities to realize these goals. Many Dance BA students pursue a double major at UWM; the service-learning component provides an opportunity to integrate the content of the two areas of study.

The Minor in Somatics prepares students to undertake further study in an array of artistic, teaching/learning, and health/wellness disciplines. Students will study a wide range of somatic practices, including Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Alexander Technique, Pilates Method, Ideokinesis, Body-Mind Centering, Authentic Movement, Iyengar Yoga, and Martial Arts.

Students in both the BFA and BA dance degree programs must complete the following Dance Foundations curriculum in their freshman year:
