Dance Minor

The dance program is an interdisciplinary offering in the Department of Theatre. Students practice the rigorous technique of multiple dance genres, explore dance theory, and deepen their understanding of the anatomy of the body in motion. Also, students have the opportunity to hone their skills in choreography, in holistic wellness, and have regular performance opportunities.

The Dance minor offers students the opportunity to pursue the specialized skills necessary for dance performance. Students will complete courses in dance technique, performance, dance history, and production/design and integrate learning through involvement with dance concerts and/or musical theatre productions.

This minor is an interdisciplinary offering between the Departments of Theatre (THE) and Kinesiology and Health (KNH) with course offerings from the two departments. Students interested in the dance minor should meet with Ashley Goos, Assistant Teaching Professor, Director of Dance.
