The dance minor provides students with both technical dance skills and general knowledge of dance as an art form. Through studio practice in technique and creative-based classes, students gain a foundation in dance training and an appreciation for dance as an art form. Core courses provide the student with an increased understanding of the development of dance in a larger global context. This minor can be combined with any major and minor except the dance major.
