Pingree students have the opportunity to study traditional forms of dance such as ballet and modern, as well as non-western dance practices and techniques. All study is further informed by exposure to the fields of somatics, ethnography, and artistic performance. Through physical engagement, students discover a deeper understanding of themselves, other cultures, and the nature of movement. Classes are sizeable, with a mix of male and female students. Both classwork and homework are assigned in every level of dance.
