Really, I think it comes down to finding a program that has sufficiently rigorous dance training—which seems more likely but not guaranteed in a BFA program. Definitely it’s important to look at each program individually. Agita indeed!

I wanted to throw out Ohio University's honors tutorial program.  https://www.ohio.edu/honors/

It's a pretty unique program where the student works with a tutor to create a customized degree (no general ed requirements).  The website does a better job of explaining it than I can! Anyway, a BFA in Dance is one of the degrees available under the honors tutorial umbrella.  I would say one of the dance department's strengths is choreography (they are definitely not in the business of producing ballerinas).

My daughter is a student there - I'm happy to answer questions via P.M. if anyone has any.

Good luck - I agree with everyone who said they really have to visit and experience the schools to form their own opinions.

Thanks, I’ll have a look!
UNC-Greensboro (in-state for us) similarly has a residential college program that can help it feel like a smaller school, as well as a strong dance department.
