Technique Classes

Six 1.5 credit courses of ballet and six 1.5 credit courses of modern dance technique classes. The intermediate proficiency level (DA 205  and DA 206 ) are required for graduation. Students are evaluated for technical ability every semester and are moved up in level at the discretion of the dance faculty.

All Dance Majors

All dance majors participate as a cast member and/or as a crew member for the Emerging Choreographers Concert and for the Dance Ensemble Concert every year. These types of experiences support our philosophy that the theoretical approach to performance must be supplemented with practical experience.

Elective Courses

Within the framework of the dance department, the student, in consultation with their advisor, selects elective courses in accordance with their needs for future growth and development in the field of dance. DA 301 DA 4141 DA 4241 DA 428 DA 4781 DA 4791 , and DA 495  are offered on a pass/fail basis. DA 280  will be a class in which the instructor can designate the pass/fail option or not because it is a special topics class and will change from semester to semester.
