Dance Your Heart Out, Pursue Your Passion

Developed and implemented in 1996 and revised in 2005, the Department of Theater and Dance’s Dance minor program provides a foundation for those interested in teaching dance, working with a dance company, managing a private dance studio, working with theater productions, or desiring a broad-based education within the dance discipline.

Students choosing a dance minor should work closely with a dance advisor to plan a course of study that best meets their needs and accounts for their dance background.

Required courses: 6 credits

DANC 102 – Introduction to Dance

Choose one from the following:

DANC 351 – Choreography

DANC 353 – Dance Curriculum and Instruction

DANC 355 – Dance Production

Four courses from the following as advised: 12 credits

DANC 150 – Fundamentals of Dance

DANC 250 – Beginning Modern Dance

DANC 260 – Jazz Dance

DANC 270 – Beginning Ballroom/Tap Dance

DANC 280 – Beginning Ballet

DANC 290 – Ethnic

DANC 481 – Dance Studio

No course can be used to satisfy both the required six-credit and the elective twelve-credit categories.
