Expanding your career possibilities through movement

Dance minors virtually shape their own program based on their individual interests, as they can choose from a variety of technical and training courses. Anyone can select a minor in dance and an audition is not required; however, previous experience in dance is recommended.

A minor in dance will further your dance education and prepare you to research and write about dance and the arts. Many of our students select a dance minor in hopes of gaining extra training for becoming teachers of dance or for advancing their performance skills.
