Framed by the Mission of Loyola Marymount University, the LMU Dance Program is committed to the inquiry and practice of dance as a creative, expressive art form that is integral to life.  

The program believes that the study of dance engages the student as a whole person – body, mind, and spirit. 

Guided by collaborative partnerships with teachers and scholars, opportunities to engage prominent dance artists, as well as participation with the diverse cultural and dance communities of Los Angeles and beyond, LMU Dance prepares students for a variety of career paths in dance and related areas of professional engagement. 

The Program provides a strong, unified learning community that works with deep intention, cooperation, and flexible engagement in performance, scholarship, choreography, and social action. 

Housed in the Department of Theater Arts and Dance, the Dance Program offers coursework for the dance major, the dance minor, and the general student population who wish to pursue dance as part of the core curriculum, as electives, and for the purposes of a liberal arts education.
