In 2012 my consulting firm, Callahan Consulting for the Arts, did a study for the Mellon Foundation that addressed this question. A summary of the study is here: http://www.forthearts.org/publications/choreography-report. The full report is on the Mellon website here: https://mellon.org/media/filer_public/d8/7c/d87c5b26-bd0f-4f25-ae37-4ca7e3afd2f4/callahanconsulting_choreographictrainingfullreport_oct2014.pdf
At the time of the study, based on data from the Dance Magazine College Guide, there were 31 MFA programs. The full list is in Appendix B on pages 74-77. You may wish to compare it to your list.
