Historical Note

In the 1970's, dance at Duke, under the excellent guidance of Julia Wray, was housed in a very supportive Physical Education department. The course offerings included two levels of modern dance technique, modern dance repertory, composition, improvisation, and two or three courses in dance history. Two full length concerts as well as 2 or 3 informal events were offered each year. In the late 70's, two levels of ballet technique were added to the curriculum. In the 80's, after dance was moved from Physical Education and placed within the Institute of the Arts, the program developed increased rigor in its training both in the studio and in theory courses. As the number of full time faculty grew from two to seven, the selection of courses increased dramatically.
