Apply for Doctoral Study:
The Doctoral Program in Dance Education views dance as an essential form of embodied experience through which people imagine and create, shape identity, and understand cultures, teach, learn, research, and communicate meaning about diverse human experiences. Our community welcomes experienced dance educators who celebrate a wide variety of dance traditions and who are deeply committed to enacting our mission to cultivate educational opportunities that are accessible, inclusive, equitable, and excellent for all dance learners. The doctoral students in our community are interested in researching a wide range of educational issues impacting critically underrepresented sectors of the field, such as PK-12 dance education, community college education, university dance teacher preparation, teacher advancement, and dance teacher certification, for example. Our doctoral program dovetails with the Arnhold Institute for Dance Education Research, Policy, and Leadership which serves as a core training ground for doctoral students, providing opportunities to research and connect with faculty, research fellows, and affiliated global scholars. 

Recognized by scholars as the primary incubator for developing dance education as a field in PK-12 schools and universities, Teachers College has played a principal role in cultivating and empowering dance education leaders for over 100 years. Nested in the arts mecca of New York City and as the nation’s premier institution in teaching teachers in all fields, Teachers College is the ideal place to earn a doctorate in dance education and join the legacy of dance education leadership.
