The Dance Program utilizes service learning, field experience and internship programs to enrich students’ learning and to foster a connection between MSU and its student body and the Denver community. The program’s focus on individualized, high-level experiential learning, both in management and artistic realms, along with extensive access to Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, is unique amongst other dance programs. The dance major is exceptional in its flexibility, and empowers students to actively participate in their learning through customized field experience, internship, and service learning projects that give them hands on experience. We aim to prepare students for their future in dance and beyond, supporting their specific career and educational goals through concrete learning experiences and creative exploration.
