The University of Washington Department of Dance believes dance is for everybody. We expand the meanings and experiences of dance as a field of study and a living art form. We employ pedagogical perspectives, research approaches, dance-making methods, and performance philosophies that are historically and culturally informed to elevate the value of play, creativity, critical thinking, and embodied knowledge for our students and global communities.

Through the completion of the UW Department of Dance dance-making course series, dance majors are able to hone their practice and present their works in the Dance Majors Concert, training to find their voices within the larger dance community.
