The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance’s mission is in educating the complete dance artist—agile, intelligent and in command of an expanded skill set to meet the fast-evolving demands of professional dance.
The comprehensive BFA and MFA Programs build high-level proficiencies in performance technique, choreography, dance production technology and critical understanding of the artform, all within a global cultural context. Concentrated production seasons of aesthetically diverse work thrive in an atmosphere of creative exchange between professionally motivated students and a faculty of practicing artists. Unique among dance conservatories, students and faculty in the CalArts Dance School function together as a close-knit creative community, thriving on collaboration, not competition, with one another.
The School's performance calendar includes 8-10 concerts featuring student and faculty work each year. These concerts include the Open House Dance Concert, the BFA II Solo Dance Concert, the Winter Dance Concert, the Student Choice Concert, the MFA Thesis concerts, the Spring Dance Concert, Next Dance Concert and Last Dance Concert. This rigorous schedule provides students with regular performance opportunities at each stage of their development— and prepares them for the demands of professional dance productions.
