Unmasking Dance in the Italian Renaissance - A Student Blog
Follow along as Alex Caulfield and other Springfield College students explore Italy (May 24-June 29) as part of the study abroad program Unmasking Dance in the Italian Renaissance.
The dance major program gives students many opportunities to develop their individuality, creativity, dance knowledge and technique. Majors study dance in depth and prepare for a career in dance or a related field. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for graduate programs in dance education, dance/movement therapy, somatics, and other related fields. Students may wish to combine dance with another major such as psychology as further preparation for a career in dance/movement therapy or dance education. Or they may wish to take courses in management and economics to prepare for a career as a small dance business owner. Fieldwork and internships provide students with the opportunity to work closely with a dance professional or institution.

The dance minor program offers students the opportunities to grow individually as dancers, artists, and knowledgeable observers of dance. The program is designed to develop students intellectually, physically, and creatively, and to encourage students to focus on a particular area of dance: therapy, performance/choreography, or education.
