About Us

 

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the website for
York University's Department of Dance! 


Claire Wootten In these pages, you’ll find lots of information about our programs, people and facilities. You’ll get a feel for our history as well as our current place in the local, national and international dance communities. Most importantly, you’ll find where you belong.

We are very proud of our long history of helping our students realize their dreams. For over 40 years, our graduates have been shaping a global dance ecology through performance, creation, education, research and advocacy.  A degree from York U Dance paves the way for numerous careers.  Whether you are drawn to performance, choreography, cross-cultural studies, dance science, dance production, teaching and/or dance and technology, you will find it all (and more!) at York in the context of our contemporary dance program.

Please browse these pages and, if you’d like to learn and see more, contact us at dance@yorku.ca. We’d be happy to answer any questions or arrange for you to visit our fabulous facilities.

Best,
Claire Wootten
