Dean of the School of Dance

The culture and arts industry plays a critical role in enhancing national competitiveness which provides an enriched life fit for the 21st Century landscape. There is a need for talented dancers equipped with the skills and experiences necessary to become the leaders of this changing era. The School of Dance was established specifically to provide such education. Since its foundation in 1996, the School has provided systematic core dance courses from both a theoretical and practice-based standpoint. The School continues to host specialized lectures by prominent international professors, along with a diverse performance class and master class schedule, year-round presentations of creations by students and professors, as well as close interaction and a cooperation system with prestigious art colleges around the world. This systematically and thoroughly managed academic calendar is thanks to government support. As a result, the School has produced countless winners of famous international dance competitions, leaders of world-renowned professional dance companies, and numerous dancers. Many graduates now lecture at leading art middle/high schools in Korea. Having undergone successive periods of unprecedented rapid growth within a short period of time, the School of Dance has risen to global prominence as a school famous for skilled students in the dancing world.
