Admissions

 

Guided by an interdisciplinary faculty of artists, dance scholars and ethnographers, the academic programs in World Arts and Cultures/Dance are organized around three fundamental missions:

  • The formulation of critical and intercultural insights into the nature of human creativity
  • The creation and interdisciplinary study of dance and other body-based modes of performance
  • Mutually beneficial engagement with the diverse cultural and artistic communities of Los Angeles

The Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance is an interdisciplinary unit, which finds its raison d'ĂȘtre in a set of intellectual and artistic problems rather than an established academic discipline. The programs of teaching, research and performance in World Arts and Cultures/Dance are unified around a shared concern with problems of cultural identity and difference; the meaning of tradition in contemporary societies; the forging of connections between critical theory and artistic practice; and the changing social roles and responsibilities of artists and scholars of the arts, both in the United States and worldwide.
