You will learn a wide array of popular dance forms, including modern, tap, jazz, ballet, improvisation, African, hip-hop and more. Learn more about our Academic Programs.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Theatre Major, Morehead, KY "Before coming to MSU I didn't have the slightest idea what I wanted to do with my life. After running wardrobe for two shows here at MSU, I discovered that theatre, specifically costumes, is a passion. I feel extremely lucky to work with such a talented group of individuals, students and faculty alike. Thanks to the MSU Theatre Program, after two semesters and one costume internship, I feel that when I finish my degree I will be fully prepared to go out into the world and work in professional theatre."
