Performing Arts: Dance

You should study dance at UL Lafayette if:

  • You have studied — formally or informally — ballet, tap, hip-hop, modern, contemporary, or other forms of dance.
  • You’re well organized, detail-oriented, disciplined, assertive, and an effective listener.
  • You love other forms of art and are interested in all aspects of dance production.
  • You’re eager to get on stage, perform, and choreograph for our mainstage productions.

As a performing arts major with a concentration in dance, you'll get valuable experience to advance as a dancer.

Collaborate with professionals in the industry and other dancers to produce and perform in mainstage productions each year, take master classes and workshops, and explore different realms of dance through your courses.

Our program prepares you for careers in dance, including choreography, teaching dance in schools or studios, and performing with professional dance companies. Our graduates are professional dancers in cities such as Houston, Hollywood, New York City, Las Vegas, and Orlando.
