Our department offers an 18-credit dance minor that can be combined with another course of study.
While no audition is necessary to declare a dance minor, certain advanced-level technique classes and performance opportunities do require an audition.
Our students work on technique and knowledge of the dance field. They take courses in dance history and theory, with technique courses in a variety of dance forms.
The minor also allows you to explore various cultural and ethnic forms of dance. It includes a rich selection of courses from associated departments, such as African American and African Diaspora Studies, Ballet, and Anthropology. Performance opportunities include a student dance workshop, which takes place at the end of each semester.
Other performance opportunities exist with the IN MOTION student dance company, the African American Dance Ensemble, the local Windfall Dancers, and the Jacobs School of Music opera and theatre productions.
Make an appointment with our academic advisor to learn more and explore your dance minor options.
