The York University-School of Toronto Dance Theatre Professional Training Program is a program offered jointly with York University’s Dance Department. It is an Honours B.F.A. program that draws on the complementary strengths of both institutions, and is similar to the existing Honours B.F.A. Joint Program in Dance offered with Canada’s National Ballet School. The program is consistent with the Academic Plan of the York Faculty of Fine Arts and the University’s strategic priority regarding the development of professionally related programs.
Students who successfully complete the three-year School of TDT program, recognized by the Professional Training Certificate, with minimum B standing (6.0 York GPA) will be eligible to apply for admission to the York B.F.A. (Hons) Dance program. After successful application to York University, students admitted will have up to 60 credits from their training at the School applied towards their 120 B.F.A. (Hons) degree. Given the studio technique and performance orientation of the School of TDT program, students in the joint program will concentrate their B.F.A (Hons) studies on theory and other non-studio courses.
A York dance audition is not required for graduates of The School of Toronto Dance Theatre Professional Training Program.
