Creative Research

Creative research drives Dance At Illinois. We embrace diverse viewpoints, investigate new approaches, find connections, and immerse in the process of discovery to explore and stretch the field of dance.

What creative research means

Creative Research is a way of knowing! The process of immersion and discovery allows for intersections with other artists, scientists and humanists regarding culture, identity, beauty, and moving in space and time. Dance makers and dancers join together to create a collaborative community that has the possibility to change the way we look at the world.  Check out our exciting faculty, student and alumni research projects!
