Studio and Community Dance Minor

The Studio and Community Dance Minor provides students the opportunity to supplement their major field program with the rigorous study of private sector dance in studios and community settings. The program offers an artistic and academic environment that will enrich methods and skills in dance teaching and pedagogy, dance kinesiology, outreach, and community engagement, while stimulating students’ creativity and innovation.

In order for any minor in the Department of Theatre & Dance to be fulfilled, it must include at least nine credits that have not been used to fulfill requirements for any other major or minor.

A maximum of nine credits in a Theatre or Dance major may share with any other major or minor.

The Studio and Community Dance Minor requires the completion of 20 credits.
