 What our Alumni Say:

-I've just returned from a rigorous interview process for a position at a university, but I found I was prepared with everything that I learned from the NYU Master's Program! I taught three levels of ballet technique: the highest level, the lowest level, and one in the middle. I taught class plans I utilized in the ABT track and the vocabulary matched the level of ability of the students perfectly. Additionally, I taught Pilates, Gyrotonic, Teaching Methods, and presented my current research. I already had my research ready to go with my thesis presentation from last semester and utilized resources from Creative Movement Pedagogy for Teaching Methods. Additionally, my materials from Dance In Higher Education got my foot in the door! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

-I've been very fortunate the past couple of years in getting connected with various institutions around town. I now teach at Ailey, Harlem School of the Arts, Peridance, ABT/JKO and two ABT outreach year-long residencies. Your program did such an incredible job in preparing me for the diversity of work that one faces as a dance educator in NYC. Each class I teach has a different curriculum, demographic and approach. If it weren't for NYU, I would never have been able to teach with the level of success that I have found. I feel like I grow more and more each day. Thank you so much for your endless teaching, belief and support.

-My position at Middlesex County College in NJ as the Dance Instructor will enable me to secure tenure status with my Master’s degree from NYU. The Dance Education program at NYU was my first choice because it focuses on the most current and effective methods for teaching dance. The program has an excellent reputation in regards to honoring student individuality and student leadership as means to become an innovator in the dance education field.
