"To be a dance major at Point Park means that you will work harder than you ever have before, but you will also be rewarded with incredible memories and friends that will be so unique to your experience. The dance program helps push your limits and sets you up for a successful career."
"The faculty prepared us for the professional world through mock auditions, having talk-backs with artists and learning/being evaluated by current choreographers in the industry. I began auditioning in New York my senior year and was so surprised by how prepared I felt in the room."
"Point Park was one of the few schools that offered a concentration in jazz, rather than just ballet and modern. That was one of the first things that drew me there, aside from the excellent reputation that both the dance and musical theatre departments had."
"I wanted a dance program that had a concentration in jazz, while not being limited in opportunity by my major. Being able to be in the ballets one semester and the contemporary works the next was transformative for me, and absolutely contributed to my versatility as a performer."
"Company directors are always looking to hire dancers who are prepared to immerse themselves in a style or technique and find a seamless way to transfer that knowledge to the stage. Because of my training at Point Park, I felt more than confident in my ability to do exactly this."
"Point Park’s dance program is unlike anything else. The faculty are phenomenal and give their all to help fulfill every student’s potential. I would not be the dancer or person I am today without them and for that I am so thankful."
"I thrived on the diversity of classes and made sure to continue my training in jazz, modern and ballet throughout my entire time at Point Park. This diversity really helped me to develop a versatility that benefits me to this day."
