Requirements for the Minor in Dance (27 credit hours)
The Minor in Dance is comprised of dance technique courses in a variety of styles, with additional studies in choreography, repertory, dance history, kinesiology, and musical training. The dance program sponsors activities throughout the year, including master classes and workshops with professional companies and teachers. The dance minor can complement any major, and is open to all students on campus. Students must have completed 30 credits to audition for the dance minor. Auditions for the minor are held annually during the fall semester. Acceptance into the minor is based on an audition and a review of the student's transcript, with particular attention paid to grades achieved in DANC courses.
