Curriculum

The following outline shows the required distribution of credits by year for the four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree program in Dance.

Candidates for the Dance Division are cautioned that it will be impossible for them to follow the rigorous required school schedule and a heavy outside work schedule. Also, the Dance Division discourages its students from performing with outside groups during their stay at Juilliard, as it is nearly impossible for such work not to conflict with Juilliard commitments.

In addition, it is highly recommended that students plan to live in the Juilliard area, as long commutes are a hardship and almost always interfere with class and rehearsal schedules. All first-time freshmen are required to live in the residence hall.
