Minor in Dance

Dance courses enhance critical thinking and analytical skills, cooperation and teamwork, self-expression and self-esteem, organization and problem solving and cultural literacy. They are also a great addition to opera and theater students who want to expand their skills and market themselves as versatile performers.

The Dance program in the Department of Theatre & Dance was launched in 2011. Several classes are available in modern, musical theatre, ballet and more, as well as an "Introduction to Dance" course under the UK Core Creativity and the Arts curriculum. The program presents one annual concert with guest choreographers. Auditions are open to all UK students. The 21-credit minor is available now.
