PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Commercial Dance, the first of its kind in New York City, prepares students for a career in the entertainment industry – Broadway, television, film, media, and beyond. This major offers comprehensive dance training that bridges the gap between classical dance technique and the professional world of commercial dance. Setting itself apart from the concert dance training common to most university programs, Pace’s Commercial Dance program focuses on dance styles and techniques relevant to the individual performer. During Junior year, students choose from one of three concentrations: performance, choreography, or pedagogy.
