Dance Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Programs

The Dance minor is intended for students who desire a formal course of study in dance as an adjunct to their major in another field. The dance minor provides students with practical and intellectual experiences in dance and a limited degree of physical proficiency in contemporary dance idioms. The dance minor is comprised of a total of 24 credit hours of required course work. The program is anchored by 10 credits of training in the physical techniques of dance, augmented by additional studies of Improvisation and Choreography, Anatomy and Dance Scholarship.

As a result of successfully completing program requirements, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate body awareness through a variety of dance techniques.
  • Engage with improvisation as a creative mode of investigation and as a resource for creating choreography.
  • Identify and discuss the social-political implications of dances on stage, screen and in social settings.
