Skidmore College Named one of the Top 5 Dance Programs in the Country

“Skidmore College’s dance department emphasizes technical training in ballet and modern dance as well as academic inquiry of the field through compositional studies and historical research. The program has around 500 students; most dancers are double majors and study areas as diverse as business and government.

Programs: Classes are divided into four categories: Technique, Workshop/Production, Western Dance Forms, and Theory. Guest artists are frequently invited to the program to offer workshops, performances, and lectures.

Admissions: There is no audition requirement for the dance program. Skidmore uses the common application, which requires a 250- to 500-word personal essay on a topic provided by the school.”

Skidmore dance department profiled in Dance Magazine

“In the summer of 2012, Skidmore College students and their professor explored what it means to fully give over to a collaborative process, and to do so while making something unchangeable and concrete. Brought together through the college’s Faculty/Student Summer Research Program, Rubén Graciani led four of his students in creating two dance films that they collectively choreographed, shot, and edited on and around the Skidmore campus.

Graciani, who teaches modern and contemporary ballet technique, among other courses, performed with the Mark Morris Dance Group, Kevin Wynn Collection, and Joe Goode Performance Group before joining the Skidmore faculty in 2008. He now makes work through his newly formed company, RG Dance Projects. Though he generally creates large, movement-rich pieces for the stage, he has recently become interested in making dance films.” Photo By: Erin Kobor
