Salem’s bachelor of arts in dance studies is an interdisciplinary program that combines dance theory and technique. Students can select classes from a core list of courses, such as the History of Dance and Choreography, while also exploring a variety of elective offerings, including Performing Arts Management and The Artist as Entrepreneur. 

The BA/BS in dance and movement science is a combination of dance theory and technique, with a focus on human science and movement. This program integrates courses in physiology, nutrition, and motor development.

Both majors enhance Salem College’s offerings to students who are interested in fields such as choreography, management, education, and health-related fields. Both programs will also allow students to continue their education in dance and other movement-related areas in graduate school by giving them the opportunity to apply for master of fine arts programs in choreography or physical therapy.
