University Studies - BS, Dance Concentration
The dance concentration curriculum leads to a Bachelor of Science in University Studies. It is designed to serve students who are in good academic standing with the University (2.0+ GPA) and are specifically seeking an interdisciplinary degree plan which provides preparation in dance history, dance education, choreography, and production. Students choose two minors to complement the dance concentration.
Performance opportunities include: an annual dance concert (Perpetual Motion), senior concerts, informal performances, student organization concerts, performances throughout the community and on campus and state, regional, and national/international gala performances. Dance faculty often receive grants for other performances throughout the university in collaboration with faculty from other colleges. Students are also given the opportunity to attend various festivals and conferences.
The Dance Program also offers students the capability to work with guest artists in master classes, watching performances and learning repertory. This not only gives students an unique opportunity to build their resumes, but to work with a variety of professionals in the field.
