Dance

The Dance programs provide a full schedule of classes and activities that meets the needs of dance majors and minors as well as the general education student. We sponsor several master classes in dance and Pilates with nationally recognized guest artists, on-campus performances, and several showings and concerts during the year. The faculty dance concert, “Kinetic Conversations,” features faculty choreography and performance, student dancers, and guest artists. The student dance concert, “Celebrate Dance,” focuses on the work of student choreographers and dancers. Our dance performances have often been celebrated at the gala concert of America College Dance Association (ACDA), which recognizes the best work of emerging college dancers and choreographers.
