Graduates of the dance program at UMBC work as professional dancers in modern and contemporary dance companies. These companies are located in New York, the Baltimore-Washington area, across the country, and in theatrical productions in a variety of venues including Disney and Las Vegas. Some are choreographers with their own dance companies, receiving grants and recognition for their creative artistry. Alumni have performed in companies such as Paul Taylor 2, Pilobolus, CityDance Ensemble, Baltimore Dance Project, Deviated Theatre, Dakshina, Clancyworks and Dragonfly Dance Collective. Many of our graduates teach dance full-time in private studios, the public school system, and colleges. There are also alumni who prepared for graduate study in physical therapy while pursuing the dance major, and currently work as physical therapists. Others work as personal trainers and yoga instructors.
