According to Ba Tu, Party secretary of Beijing Dance Academy, the choreography major will be a focus of the school's future plan. Artists with working experiences are encouraged to apply to the major.

As the country's first institute of dance, the Beijing Dance School (now the Beijing Dance Academy) opened on Sept 6, 1954.

Dai Ailian, or Ailien Tai, then 38, an overseas Chinese ballerina, was appointed as the first president of the institute.
