The dance minor aims to develop dancers technically through classes in ballet, modern, jazz and tap as well as foster creativity and artistry through choreography and performance opportunities. Additionally, the study of dance history and perspectives allows students to discover how dance relates to the Christian worldview. Emphasis is placed on maintaining the highest level of artistic integrity along with strong spiritual foundations in order to prepare students for careers in dance and related fields.
If you go into a room of actors and talk to them, of the three main things—acting, singing, dancing—almost all of them are going to say their weakest one is dancing because there just isn’t as much access to dance training. This definitely sets us apart going into the professional world as actors because we will have that experience that not necessarily everyone had access to.
