NYUSH has a robust and growing dance program committed to fostering excellence and discipline, providing a platform for self-discovery and empowerment. We offer classes in Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Chinese Minority & Folk Dance, and Choreography & Performance. Students can Minor in Dance through classes offered at NYUSH which all count towards the Cross-School Dance Minor, hosted by Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.
Our program is centered around the application of creative learning and participation in the end of the semester dance concerts. In addition, our students have performed alongside faculty at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai, the ShanghART Gallery, the West Bund Art Center, the Long Museum, the Power Station of Art and the Glass Museum.
In addition to our curriculum we also offer the opportunity to students to work collaboratively through our Dance for Camera series. This exciting new genre allows our students to make dance films with those in our surrounding community, alongside museum curators, and with well-known artists.
