Minor inDance

Program Overview

Minoring in Dance involves studying the history, theory, science and technique of dance forms. 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 through the rigors of both theory and practice as you take 24 credit hours toward a dance minor in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major.

You’ll also have real opportunities to learn beyond the classroom, as the program culminates in a special performance for the public that will showcase your work. Because we design our dance program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a career as a dancer, choreographer, actor, athlete or other performance-related professional.
