What our students are saying...

The dance program at Texas A&M helped transform from a dancer into an artist. The way that this program incorporates anatomy and dancer wellness into rehearsals and dance classes, should be part of every dance program. It has been incredibly beneficial to understand the anatomy of a dancer, and be able to identify the muscular engagement that happens during each movement.
