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 (BFA) program emphasizes the techniques of ballet and contemporary dance, with equal emphasis on performance and choreography.

As of September 24, 2021, on-site Dance Department Tours are still on hiatus. This is to keep in accordance with the the university-wide policies regarding non-essential NYU visitors.  


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