Dance

Denison’s Dance department exposes students to cutting-edge dance practices from diverse cultures and perspectives, encouraging generative art-making while shifting away from a ballet-centered model. Students explore the physical and intellectual connections of culture, communication, and individual development through movement. We emphasize embodiment as a means of knowing and responding to each other and our environment.

student dance performance

More than 10 nationally known guest choreographers and dance companies visit Denison each year to host intimate performances and work closely with students.
