This page contains updates about course offerings, performance opportunities, and community initiatives for the 2020-21 academic year.
For the Spring 2021 semester, the Department of Dance will continue to offer its courses remotely and synchronously via Zoom.

One of the distinguishing aspects of a Barnard/Columbia Dance is our live concerts that feature the work of guest artists at Miller Theater and New York Live Arts. This year, we’ll still offer opportunities to create, collaborate and perform, though works will be shared in different venues: livestreams, online concerts, and films. We will support live performance when and as College and State health guidelines make it possible to do so. In Fall A, Barnard faculty member Caroline Fermin led a Rehearsal & Performance course that developed a live-stream work called “Recipes for Quarantine.” In Fall B, Colleen Thomas is re-staging “Continuous Replay: Come Together” from the repertory of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, which will be livestreamed on December 3 at 6PM.
In Spring 2021, Jennifer Archibald will lead a Rehearsal and Performance class to develop a new hip-hop dance. Also, Rebecca Bliss will lead a section of Rehearsal and Performance to create a new dance based on Afro-Cuban dance and music. The Guest Choreographers have already cast these works but will consider interested students who attend a final audition at the first class session in Spring 2021.
The Summer semesters will offer an array of studio dance classes, as well as academic and performance courses. Here’s a preliminary view of some new course offerings, all subject to change:
Dance Education, Policy and Leadership Seminar* (Summer A) a new 3-point colloquium
Dance in Africa (Summer A) a new 3-point lecture course
Music for Dance (Summer B) a 3-point studio class
Devising Immersive Performance (Summer B) a new 3-point performance composition workshop
