Dance (BFA)

At UArts, you will experience different people from different backgrounds, teachers who have different teaching styles and a community of artists who have their own way of seeing the world through art. All of which could be a very different experience from your own, and that is okay. You will grow to learn, understand and appreciate the differences, as they will enlighten and strengthen your journey. UArts breeds trailblazers, thinkers, innovators, world-shifters. And you have to experience everything in order to know how and WHY you will take the world by storm. Experience it all. ”


Onyxx Noel (Newark, Delaware) shimmied her way through her first dance class at the Christina Cultural Arts Center. The guidance from her teachers there later led her to DCNS Dance, Eleone Dance Theatre and UArts. Throughout the course of her journey, Onyxx has performed works by esteemed choreographers such as Dara Meredith, Kyle and Dinita Clark, Darrell Grand Moultrie, Tommie Waheed Evans, Milton Myers, and Ronald K. Brown, among others. Her film credits include In The Heights (2021) and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020), and her stage credits include the Grammy Award–winning production of Porgy & Bess at The Metropolitan Opera and The Public Theater’s musical Hell’s Kitchen. She is now a collaborator with Camille A. Brown and Dancers.
