Dance

"Great dancers are not because of their technique, they are great because of their passion."

- Martha Graham

Dance majors develop their abilities through a progression of courses that include orientation, history, composition, production, tap, ethnic dance (African), four levels of a Vaganova-based ballet technique and three levels of modern dance. A rigorous professional teaching approach equips dance majors physically and mentally to pursue a dance career. In addition, classes with master teachers focus on areas not emphasized in the curriculum. (The Physical Education requirement is satisfied by select dance courses.) Upon graduation, dance students are encouraged to continue their training at a higher level. Some begin their performance careers immediately.
