MFA in Dance

Bennington’s Master of Fine Arts in Dance Program is designed to give accomplished artists the time, space, and focus to develop new work.

MFA candidates are expected to have substantial professional experience in choreography and performance or related disciplines, well beyond undergraduate studies. We recognize the achievements of artists who have had significant careers and encourage them to apply in order to continue their creative research.

In a supportive and challenging environment, candidates collaborate with expert faculty members and other students, including undergraduates, to deepen their artistic passions and to hone their technical skills. MFA in Dance students have full access to the College’s outstanding facilities: a fully equipped 100' x 100' black box dance theater, two dedicated dance studios, and multiple other venues (including theaters, galleries, the student center, and outdoor spaces) to accommodate their creative endeavors.
