Can you tell us where the people you are referring to got their degrees? Did the MFA come after a BFA or was it after a BA or BS degree? I went to KCAI (Kansas City Art Institute) and got a fantastic art history education, which I then realized once I got to the Art Institute of Chicago for my MFA, that not all of my classmates were as well prepared. The grad courses there were less than I had gotten as an undergrad, and that is one of the "so-called* top art programs in the country.
Schools which confer the MFA have to be accredited by the NASAD (National Association of Schools of Ar

  • Avatar GroovyGirl623 As a teacher, what more can I do to further my dance education?
    Apr 07, 2007 by GroovyGirl623 | Posted in Dancing

    I have been dancing since I was 3. I'm 24 now, and I teach dance at a studio in a small town in southern Wisconsin. I really love ballet more than anything else, but I don't get to teach that many classes because appare …nd not just all little kid classes. Any suggestions on what more I can do?
    Also thought I should mention that I'm a member of the Chicago National Association of Dance Masters as well as Dance Masters of Wisconsin.

    • Well done. Since you have a BA degree in dance already (right?), why not go for advanced education (MA) in dance education/pedagogy.

      As you are in IL or WI, here are schools near you with Masters programs: …try">MFA programs near you: ,

      They dont specialize spec in education, but you mentioned you wanted to stay in the area. If you could go to school somewhere like NY NYU has a top notch program.
