With a primary focus on Musical Theatre Dance, the dance program incorporates a mix of Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and Tap techniques. The program serves students who are theatre majors looking to study dance more intensively, serious dance minors, or students simply interested in building strength, coordination and self-confidence through the study of dance.
The dance minor requires additional courses in dance history, anatomy for dance, and choreography. Our faculty have a wide range of professional teaching, choreographic and performing experience ensuring students a comprehensive and rigorous program of study.
The Minor in Dance requires 18 hours. The program is comprehensive and stresses a strong understanding of the body and how it can work most efficiently in a variety of techniques – ballet, modern, jazz and tap – while also requiring courses in history, choreography, and conditioning for dance.
To spark creativity, facilitate innovation, and cultivate artists who are confident and prepared to succeed in the entertainment industry.
