As a student apart of our dance program, you will develop the imaginative, critical and technical skills essential to career success. This program provides a foundation for your career as a professional dancer, artistic director, educator, critic, choreographer, rehearsal director or as an administrative professional for dance companies. You will find our alumni continuing their education by pursuing bachelor’s or master’s degrees in dance, participating in the American Dance Festival and performing with professional dance companies.
The dance minor, designed for both technical and non-technical dancers, will give you a strong foundation in dance technique, history, composition and performance. You will learn a wide array of popular dance forms, including modern, tap, jazz, ballet, improvisation, African, hip-hop and more. Learn more about our Academic Programs.
