The Dance program is designed for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate program in Dance. The program provides both a liberal arts (core studies) background and dance coursework designed to prepare students for successful transfer to a four-year institution as a Dance major. Some graduates have gone directly into careers teaching at private dance studios/schools.
Faculty bring varied experiences as professional dancers and choreographers. Classes are limited to sixteen students, allowing faculty to offer a high degree of personal support.
Students have many opportunities to perform through the Dance Repertory courses, Dance Performance Ensemble, and the Dance Program Final Presentations. The Dance Performance Ensemble produces a concert each semester and performs at area festivals, community events and American College Dance Association conferences. Student dancers and choreographers also take part in the College’s Performing Arts Showcases.
