No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Come explore a new career path, get a fresh perspective, or rediscover a passion. You can enroll in Tisch classes and special programs regardless of whether or not you currently attend a university. We offer rigorous, inspiring courses year-round for current college students and adult learners in New York City and abroad.
Our bachelor’s (BFA) and master’s (MFA) 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 in the Jack Crystal Theater 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. Students also learn to create and launch their own successful dance companies.
In addition to offering a MFA in Dance, we recently created a MFA with a concentration in Dance and New Media (with instructors from Dance, Film, Interactive Telecommunications, and other departments), and we offer a MFA/MA dual degree with Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
