Dancers holding each other in MFA thesis concert by Jinglin

The MFA in Choreography at the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts is an opportunity accelerator for dance artists pursuing careers as creators and educators.

An intensive two-year program, we concentrate on forging collaborative and professional partnerships, and provide comprehensive training to support the innovative and self-sustaining citizen-artists we graduate.

At CalArts Dance, MFA candidates find world-class collaborators in film/video, animation, art, music, and theater/design; intensive mentorship from the internationally recognized artists and thinkers comprising our faculty and artists-in-residence; pedagogical training, professional development, and real-world practice.
The MFA in Choreography includes options for concentrations in dance for camera, dance theater, and body x technology, as well as a concurrent integrated media degree.

We provide multiple platforms for your creative work locally, and opportunities for research and practice at our growing roster of partner institutions in Burkina Faso, Paris, London, and Taipei.
