St. Francis partners with Fort Wayne ballet

Buy Us A Coffee

FORT WAYNE – The University of St. Francis (USF) has collaborated with the Fort Wayne Ballet to offer four-year and two-year programs in dance through the university’s Fort Wayne Ballet Conservatory at the University of Saint Francis. It is the region’s only four-year degree of its type.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and Associate of Arts in Dance will prepare students for professional dance careers while delivering a sound liberal arts core curriculum for a well-rounded education. The degrees feature study of a full range of dance styles — classical ballet, contemporary dance, jazz, tap, character and repertoire — along with dance history and theory, pedagogy and choreography. The dance technique core, supplemented by an intense curriculum, positions students to perform in a professional dance company, attend graduate school in dance, teach in a public or private dance school or choreograph.

Dance courses will be held at the new facilities of Fort Wayne Ballet at Auer Arts Center.
