At the Tisch Department of Dance, we seek to develop and prepare fully realized dance artists to be critical thinkers, fearless leaders, and fluent performers.

Our bachelor’s and master’s programs emphasize the techniques of ballet and contemporary dance, with equal emphasis on performance and choreography. Tisch’s location in the dance capital of the world New York City allows students to see to frequent performances by internationally acclaimed companies. Our own concert series provides students an opportunity to choreograph and dance for a live audience. Graduates have the reputation of being creative muses and innovative choreographers; they find success in concert and commercial settings, performing with world-class dance companies, and appearing on Broadway, Radio City Music Hall and at the Metropolitan Opera.


We want to make citizens of the world that are artists, that are changers.
