PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Our mission is to inspire and nurture civically engaged artists/practitioners through physical, intellectual, creative, and therapeutic experiences in dance. The dance major combines rigorous academic coursework with extensive stage and studio dance experiences. Drexel features outstanding faculty of noted dancers, choreographers and educators to prepare our graduates for a variety of careers in dance and related fields. We achieve this through Drexel’s outstanding co-op program, which has all students working for six months in a job in the dance field. We encourage our students to take one of the dozens of minors offered in the University be it business, film, art history or in other subjects that ensure that our graduates receive a well-rounded education that best prepares them for successful careers in the industry. Drexel Westphal’s undergraduate dance majors will explore extensive experiences to improve as a dancer, choreographer, and performer, while being interested in other disciplines.
