Academic Catalog

Dance Minor

The dance minor combines technique with academic study. It is intended to supplement majors in related fields such as theatre, music or physical and occupational therapy.

Students must audition into the minor to determine placement in the appropriate level of technique (the program expects that students have achieved sufficient proficiency in Modern and Ballet to be enrolled in technique classes at level 3). Auditions are scheduled through the theatre department office.
