Congratulations and Welcome to the Class of 2026!We look forward to knowing you.
We are so excited to welcome the Class of 2026 to campus! We hope to meet many of you at Dance Orientation and during the days that follow. Please come visit us to learn more about our wide variety of course offerings, performance opportunities, off-campus study, fellowships for summer research and training, and more!
The Swarthmore College Dance program is a global place of discovery, creativity, intellectual, and artistic inquiry. In our theory/practice approach to dance, we do not require you to have prior dance experience to take one of our technique or dance studies classes. We welcome you to explore our website and see what we offer and are happy to discuss potential choices with you, whether you are looking to explore dance for the first time, to continue in a style in which you have prior experience, or to try something new to you in either the studio or the classroom. Our first year recommended courses will give a snapshot of the possibilities of studying Dance within the college curriculum.

The Dance Program invites you to join us for a fun and wonderful time at the Spring 2022 Dance Concert! Dancing, drumming, and live music along with original faculty and student choreography…an evening of pure joy! Free and open to the public, audience masking required.
Spring 2020: Dancing during a pandemicCoronavirus 2020
With the support of the college and the hard work of our faculty and students, the Dance program quickly pivoted into online learning formats to teach our embodied techniques via Zoom, Facebook, and other digital sharing sites. We have also continued to instruct our academic classes and support the research of our faculty and students with Moodle and Zoom. In addition, we found ways to support our community by making links to other online dance opportunities available on social media and by hosting through online meetings and classes such as yoga, barre and Pilates.
We look forward to seeing all of you in the Fall either virtually or in person when we return to our studios and classrooms.
