The dance program is designed to train students to become versatile professional dancers, choreographers, and teachers. This Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree combines dance technique classes with theatrical and musical training to prepare students to succeed in their specialized field of concert dance or musical theatre.

The foundation of the dance curriculum is a daily class in ballet technique with additional training in modern, jazz theatre dance, and tap, allowing the dance majors to hone their technical abilities and creativity into a wide range of successful careers.”

Classes in choreography, dance pedagogy, dance history, and pointe/men’s class are required. Seniors must complete an individually choreographed senior dance project in conjunction with a support paper. Required courses outside of dance include studies in theatre, voice, acting and music theory.
