Are you interested in dance? Want to challenge yourself and enhance your physical and mental self-awareness and self-control? Want to perform while staying fit at the same time? Then you may want to consider a minor in dance.
You can declare a minor in dance to complement a major in any other area of study. The combination of a dance minor with a major in community health and wellness, psychology, visual arts, or management, for example, may lead to graduate study and/or careers in such fields as dance/health education, expressive therapies, or arts administration. A minor in dance may also enhance the preparation and competitiveness of students enrolled in the educator licensure majors.
A student who decides to declare the dance minor must do so through either a member of the dance faculty, the coordinator of Dance and Music, or the chairperson of Fine and Applied Arts. The dance faculty works with the student to plan a sequence of courses most appropriate to individual background and goals. All dance courses may be repeated for additional credit.
In addition to the requirements listed below, the faculty encourages dance minors to elect an inter-area field experience that applies knowledge of dance in a field placement appropriate to the student's major.
Dance Minor Requirements:
|FA 1000||Introduction to Fine Arts||3|
|DANC____||Dance electives at the 1000-level or above||6|
|DANC____||Dance electives at the 2000-level or above||9|
Annual Dance Performance
At the end of each spring semester the Department of Fine and Applied Arts presents a dance performance with students enrolled in dance courses such as Classical Ballet II, Introduction to Jazz, Introduction to Choreography, and Dance Performance.
This event gives you the opportunity to make the transition from classroom to stage and provides an exciting and productive experience. Most students register for fall semester dance courses as well. Those who continue to study in the spring semester further enrich their dance experience. For seniors and those with a minor in dance this performance represents the culmination of four years of study.
