Congratulations and Welcome to the Class of 2025!We look forward to knowing you.
We're thrilled to have you join our diverse campus community that will support and challenge you in and out of the classroom. All students, regardless of experience, are welcome to engage and experiment with dance. We look forward to sharing your journey with dance at Swarthmore College!
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.
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.
