The Department of Kinesiology offers an 18 credit dance minor that provides students with a broad range of study which can best fulfill their goals and interests. Students may take courses that lead towards a Dance Teaching/Science or a Performance/Choreography emphasis, or they may choose a more interdisciplinary approach. Dance minors also work on technique and knowledge of the dance field by taking courses in history, kinesiology, modern, ballet, jazz, tap, improvisation, and composition.Additionally, the minor also allows students to explore various cultural and ethnic forms of dance and includes a rich selection of courses from associated departments, such as African American and African Diaspora Studies, Theatre and Drama, Ballet, and Anthropology. Performance opportunities include a student dance workshop, which takes place at the end of each semester.
Other performance opportunities include IN MOTION student dance company, the African American Company, Windfall Dancers, and opera and theatre productions. There is no audition necessary to declare a dance minor, however, certain advanced-level technique classes and performance opportunities do require an audition.
