Dance Curriculum Overview

Focusing on modern dance, jazz, and tap, you’ll explore dance as an art form that integrates the body, the mind and ultimately the spirit

An academic minor normally consists of 20 to 24 credits taken in courses in one area or related areas of study prescribed by the faculty.
