NYU announces Dance and New Media MFA concentration
 
The NYU Dance and New Media Faculty are delighted to announce a new MFA 
concentration.
 
The Dance Department at Tisch School of the Arts announces its new MFA 
Concentration in Dance and New Media. Housed in the department’s 
internationally acclaimed conservatory program, this concentration offers 
students an intensive exploration of existing and emerging technologies.  
Coursework provides both technical and artistic training in the creation, 
performance, and documentation of works. Areas of research include cinematic 
dance practices, multimedia performance, streaming media, interactive 
computing, motion tracking, innovation in dance documentation, and the 
development of other hardware and software tools for dance.  As part of the 
larger NYU emerging media community, we collaborate with practitioner/scholars 
at NYU working across the scope of new media practice and theory. These 
departments include ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program), Film, 
Integrated Digital Media, Animation, Gaming, and the Music Programs at 
Steinhart.   This program of study culminates in a thesis comprised of a 
practice-based thesis project and a written work of criticism.
 
The Dance and New Media concentration assumes depth in dance. We welcome a 
broad spectrum of media abilities and experiences. Students will engage in 
Dance and New Media courses while participating in the Tisch Dance MFA 
curriculum. In addition to the application, prospective Dance and New Media 
students must participate in a faculty interview, and the MFA audition process. 
Candidates may also submit an optional New Media Portfolio for review.
 
We look forward to hearing from you.
