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 business 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
Total 18
