The minor in dance performance, which is available to all University students, is designed for those with previous dance training who wish to continue the pursuit of their interests within the context of their liberal arts studies. Dance performance minors do not perform in main stage concerts but are eligible to audition for student concerts by permission. Students who wish to take more than nine hours of technique classes may do so by permission. Acceptance criteria for the dance minor are the same as those for the major. The minor requires a minimum of 18 credit hours in dance as outlined below.
