Major in Dance


The B.A. in Dance offers conservatory-level dance training within the context of Loyola’s Ignatian liberal arts curriculum. Our Modern curriculum features classical and contemporary forms. We preserve and contextualize classical techniques and masterworks, using work from the past to enrich current and emerging approaches to dance creation and performance.

Chicago serves as an extended classroom for our program, and our dancers engage extensively with the professional dance community through Loyola’s premier professional faculty, guest artists, internship opportunities, world-class performances, master classes, and workshops.
