Wayne State University

Careers in Dance

Many of the students who graduate from the Maggie Allesee Department of Dance move into dance-related careers. Some graduates continue in dance performance and choreography in regional and national companies. Others work with movement as kinesiologists, dance therapists, physical therapists and Laban movement analysts. Still others choose teaching. These graduates begin their own successful dance studios, opt to obtain the State of Michigan K-12 certification in dance education in order to teach in secondary schools or choose to continue their professional education in order to teach at the university level.
