EXCELLENCE IN THE CULTURAL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, PROFESSIONALLY PREPARING THE MIND AND BODY FOR SUCCESS IN DANCE.
From dancing in concert dance companies to Broadway shows and more, and from arts administration to writers, teachers, designers, choreographers or physical therapists, Marymount alumnae/i can be found everywhere. Housed in New York City, the program draws upon the highest standards of the profession, is versatile in nature, and prepares students for various careers in dance. If it’s been thought about, our dancers are out there doing it. We offer two degrees, the B.F.A. and the B.A., with a number of concentrations. Personal growth, on stage and off, is at the heart of our mission. Our students can audition for the MMC Dance Company, study abroad or apply for one of countless internships. Seniors are assisted in resume preparation, cover letters and photos, to land interviews and auditions. Our priority is preparation for life after graduation.
