Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced student, our dance program is an opportunity to grow as a performer. The study of dance is critical to the study of Musical Theatre and the coursework provided will give majors the necessary skills to succeed professionally. We believe any student can benefit from the confidence, creativity, and physical awareness that dance offers and therefore classes are open to all majors.
