The dance program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point aspires to create a dynamic culture in which
students are inspired to achieve full physical expression, technical and
stylistic range, and anatomical efficiency. We are dedicated to artistic
experimentation and contemporary inquiry that is culturally relevant and
historically grounded, preparing students to communicate, contribute and lead
as global citizen artists. The dance program is nationally accredited with the National Association of Schools of Dance and also a member of Advancing Dance Education in the Arts. Visi here to see videos from the program.

This re-evaluation includes training with optimal anatomical alignment that supports injury-free dancing. Students also develop the ability to work as a part of an ensemble, the ability to work openly and honestly with other dancers, the ability to be flexible in the artistic process with choreographers, directors, rehearsal assistants, and the ability to collaborate successfully with other artists and technicians.
