The theatre and dance program within the Department of Visual and Performing Arts within the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences (LAS) seeks a full time, tenure-track dance focused interdisciplinary artist and scholar for an assistant professor position. The programmatic ethos of integration of theatre and dance, in addition to other areas of Visual and Performing Arts, is important to our faculty and a central focus of this new position. Responsibilities include the teaching of studio classes, the designing and teaching of an innovative two-part dance history sequence, and producing a yearly dance concert for the department. The ideal candidate will be expected to help guide the growing dance program and further develop and enhance the dance major. An expertise on styles beyond "classically" defined western and Eurocentric styles is expected. The program is experiencing extensive growth and recently moved into the new 90,000 square foot Ent Center for the Performing Arts, providing opportunity for residencies and master classes by nationally renowned dance artists.
