Department of Music and Performing Arts
The Contemporary Dance Concentration at Southeastern Louisiana University is a choreography and performance based discipline of the arts that plays an active role within the Department of Music and Performing Arts. Students have the option of pursuing a Bachelor of General Studies with a Dance Concentration or a Minor in Dance and Contemporary Choreography. See Dance Curriculum for details.
The Contemporary Dance Concentration offers courses in Research, Technique, and Performance that are centered within a Contemporary Dance approach to artistic investigation with emphasis on the creation of original work within a supportive environment so that each individual artist's voice can truly be heard. Through auditions, dancers perform each semester in the departmental contemporary dance company, Dance Performance Project, as well as during the Fall semester with DancePerformanceProject2 (DPP2) devoted exclusively to improvisation as a performing art form.
All levels of dance experience and training are invited to become a part of our
Contemporary Dance Concentration.
