Dance Minor

Earn a minor in dance

A dance minor is centered on teaching dance as both a physical skill and a creative movement form.

The dance minor will help you discover and develop your talents as a dancer. You’ll learn technique, choreography, and performance skills, and put that knowledge to practices as you perform pieces created by faculty or yourself.

You’ll also have opportunities to join The Moving Company and to attend state and national dance conferences.

In three years or fewer, depending on your schedule and courses offered, you can earn this credential. 


  • No audition is required to pursue a dance minor.
  • The minor is open to current students, regardless of major, and can be combined with any associate’s or bachelor’s degree.

Minor requirements

  • Complete a minimum of 12 credits in accordance with the specified curriculum.
  • Earn a minimum grade of C in each course.
  • Maintain a minimum 2.0 overall grade point average.
