The Bachelor of Arts in Dance degree is designed to foster the skills, understanding, and discipline of young dance artists. We strive to educate, inspire, and motivate our students. Our nurturing, yet rigorous, environment offers our dance majors many opportunities that will enrich their development. Our dance curriculum combines practical training in technique, aesthetics, and critical thinking. An intensive training in Modern/Contemporary Dance, and Ballet, is complemented by improvisation, composition, dance history, kinesiology, repertory, pedagogy, and extensive performance experience. In this way, the graduating student is prepared technically and creatively to work in dance and related fields. Students entering the program must attend an audition class and an advisement session before enrolling in the major. For more information contact Gladys Kares.
