B.A. in Dance
The B.A. in Dance is designed to provide a solid foundation in the discipline of dance. A minor (or double major) in another field is also required. The B.A. in Dance is a 45 credit hour program. You must achieve a level 4 in one dance genre and level 3 in a second genre in order to graduate.
Admittance into the B.A. in Dance degree program is a two-tiered process. Students must first attend a dance placement audition. Then, upon the completion of two semesters, students may be eligible to apply for full admittance into the degree program.
The dance degree requires students to follow a large common core of courses, which have been carefully structured to provide students with the foundation needed to become artists, educators, and performers. Additionally, all dancers study ballet, jazz, modern, and tap dance technique to round out their dance education. Students also have the opportunity to study pointe, partnering, and theatre dance.
