Dance, Associate in Arts
Upon successful completion of the Dance Associate in Arts degree, the student demonstrates skills, knowledge, and training in dance performance and choreography that fosters artistic creativity within the discipline. The rigorous, disciplined, and innovative two-year curriculum 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 program unlocks intuitive potential for kinesthetic artistic expression, and combines it with a powerful and flexible set of dance/movement techniques and skills that can be shared with others. Additionally, the program contributes to the student's development of people management skills, collaboration strategies, and artistic aesthetic needed in continuing to develop dance potential in others. For any transfer students, academic advising is recommended for selection of courses for specific campuses
