Low-Residency MFA Choreography

​​​​​​The MFA at JU nurtures the development of rigorous and refined relationships between three aspects of creative production:

Stimulus, Practice, and Analysis.

The MFA degree is a 2 year low-residency program emphasizing choreography and the creative process of generating new works that are grounded in both classical and contemporary dance genres.

Each year the program starts with a 6-week Summer Intensive. During the two semesters following the residency intensive program all MFA students come together as a single group via the ‘Blackboard’ digital platform. This allows students to work one on one with JU Faculty and local mentors to expand their choreographic practice during the nonresidency portion of the program.

A one-week residency for pedagogy is required for each candidate and may be conducted in the location of their choice.

This MFA is particularly geared toward artists in transition and expects that applicants should have professional experience in the field prior to application.
