About The Division
The dance program at Texas State offers a unique approach to dance that is designed to emphasize biomechanical efficiency and to develop a unique aesthetic approach to dance. Modern dance training has been effective in developing outstanding performers but also fits smoothly into the educational setting, preparing students to enter classrooms and graduate programs.
Graduates from our program are prepared to teach modern dance, recreational dance, jazz, and ballet in schools and in private studios. They have the ability to create dance concerts, participate in professional companies, as well as advance to higher education and other dance related fields.
