University of Central Oklahoma

The Department of Dance at UCO prepares students for professional careers in dance and dance education by helping them acquire the knowledge and skills to compete and contribute as emerging artists, creative scholars and leaders in the arts. Degrees include a B.F.A. in Dance Performance and a B.A. Ed in Dance Education (the only university in Oklahoma that offers a Dance Education degree leading to Oklahoma State Teacher Certification), and technical training with equal emphasis in ballet, modern and jazz.
