The Peabody BFA Dance program was named one of “The Top 20 BFA Dance Programs for 2020-21” by OnStage Blog citing the program’s “interdisciplinary perspective to immerse students in the critical study of movement, bodies, and society that accounts for historical and socio-cultural tensions on and off the stage.”
Dance BFA students Rush Johnston’s solo “Nothingness” and Zoë Payne’s “-back again-” were presented in the Werner Independent Choreographer Showcase, College Edition in November.
