Montgomery County Community College offers many classes in dance including ballet, modern dance, jazz, hip hop, improvisation, composition, repertory, performance ensemble, dance wellness, and dance history. Dance courses are open to all students, regardless of their major. Students have many opportunities to perform every semester.

The Dance A.A. degree is designed to transfer to a four-year program in dance. The program provides both a liberal arts (core studies) background and dance coursework comparable to the first two years at a four-year institution.

A degree in dance opens doors to many exciting careers. Graduates in dance become performers, choreographers, dance educators, owners or directors of private dance studios, dance movement therapists, dance critics, dance notators, and arts administrators. Dance students develop excellence in communication and presentation, reliability, a strong work ethic, people skills, time management skills, critical thinking, problem-solving, and experience with event planning, all of which are valuable assets in any career.
