Biography and History

The study of dance at Princeton began with introduction of coeducation in 1969 and, under the forty year leadership of Ze'eva Cohen, strengthened until it became an official academic offering in 1975 and an autonomous program in 2009. The study of dance encompasses both theoretical and critical aspects as well as physical technique and performance. Over the years, students have practiced and performed at several venues including Alexander Hall in Richardson Auditorium, the Patricia and Ward Hagan '48 Dance Studio, the Roger S. Berlind Theatre and at the Lewis Center for the Arts.
