There has been a lot of activity in the Dance Program recently!
The program has quadrupled in size since the 12-credit Dance Minor was approved in 2007. In 2008, we added a 51-credit Dance/Theatre B.F.A. and just last year a 42-credit Dance B.A.
All our faculty are working professionals as well as experienced teachers with expertise in a variety of areas, including: modern, ballet, Afro-Caribbean, tango, tap, improvisation, choreography, yoga, dance history and Laban Movement Analysis.
Our students choreograph and perform regularly in dance productions as well as in theatre productions. There is a great deal of crossover between dance and theatre. Many of the dance students will be performing in the spring musical "Urinetown" and we have a number of theatre majors performing in the spring dance concert.
The spring concert, by the way, will be March 28th to the 31st. More on that to come!
