We present at least two dance concerts and several student showcases each academic year. We hold one major production with live music annually. Productions range from classical to contemporary, in order to give you an opportunity to work in various dance genres.
Recent performances have included "Firebird Suite," "La Valse," "Tributaries," "Paquita" and other re-creations of great dance compositions. New compositions including "Prayer Cycle," "Bella Danza" and "Prism," also have been premiered recently.
Participation in our dance productions is open to all PBA students, regardless of your major. Dance majors and minors are required to participate in all productions.

Upperclassmen have the opportunity to earn up to six hours of credit a term (usually in the summer) to intern with a national dance company.
A number of our students have spent summers at such prestigious companies as Jacob's Pillow, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Mark Morris Dance Company and Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre. As internship opportunities become known, the dance faculty notifies qualified students.
