Dance Minor


The Dance minor offers students in other majors and disciplines an alternate expression and/or concentrated study of creativity and physical activity. The minor is useful to students studying other artistic mediums, worship arts, kinesiology, education, and any other field where creative, interdisciplinary problem solving is required. Students start with foundation and technique courses before choosing how to apply their skills in upper level performance courses.
