Dance, Associate in Arts
Upon successful completion of the Dance Associate in Arts degree, the student demonstrates skills, knowledge, and training for entry-level career placement and/or advanced degree transfer in dance performance and choreography. A rigorous, disciplined, and innovative two-year curriculum in dance performance is complimented by integrated studies in choreography, dance production, dance history, anthropology and theory, as well as an appreciation for the art of dance. Exploring diverse styles such as modern, classical, jazz, and world dance, the dance program seeks to unlock intuitive potential for kinesthetic artistic expression, and combine it with a powerful, yet flexible set of dance/movement techniques and skills. Additionally, the dance training will contribute to the student's development of people management skills, collaboration strategies, and artistic aesthetic. For any transfer students, academic advising is recommended for selection of courses for specific campuses.
