The following is a list of selected dance departments at colleges, universities, and conservatories in the United States offering degrees or certificates. Those that are members of NASD (National Association of Schools of Dance) are listed as such. Schools are listed alphabetically within each state.

Back Stage sent out questionnaires to schools that were listed in our 2000 guide and additional names which we found in the NASD directory. If the school did not respond to the questionnaire, we placed an asterisk (*) next to its name, denoting the fact that information is from the 2000 listing. Listings for schools that have advertisements within this section include website, department chair, and degrees offered. For more specific information, contact the schools directly.

The National Association of Schools of Dance, founded in 1981, aims to "develop a closer relationship among schools and programs of dance for the purpose of examining and improving practices and professional standards in dance education and training." NASD is located at 11250 Roger Bacon Dr., Reston, VA 20190, phone (703) 437-0700, email: info@arts-accredit.org., website: www.arts-accredit.org.
