Dance at Stanford is positioned as a rich and living art medium through which we read culture and our location within it. With over 25 student dance groups on campus and a distinguished Dance Division program, the Stanford dance community is rich and expansive.
Stanford Dance is a division of The Department of Theater & Performance Studies (TAPS). The Dance Division offers a range of broadly diverse approaches to dance as a performing art, cultural practice, political act and embodiment of ideology and beliefs. All of the dimensions through which one comes to experience dance, from studying a range of dance techniques, choreographing and performing to viewing and critically and historically assessing dance, are represented in the course offerings.
