Are you interested in a theatre or musical theatre degree or a minor in dance? Join the innovative WCU Dance Program where you’ll gain in-depth experiences in the studio, classroom, and performance that will enhance your major course of study, your skills, and your knowledge of the field of dance.
Come learn from accomplished faculty members who have a wide range of professional teaching, choreographic, and performing experience which they bring to our comprehensive and rigorous program of study.
You’ll choose from classes in a wide range of styles—ballet, modern, tap, jazz, and ballroom, to name but a few. The dance minor requires additional courses in dance history, anatomy for dance, and choreography:
- Read the dance minor requirements
- Read dance (DA) course descriptions
- Find out more about the Dance minor with our program fact sheet (PDF)
Opportunities to practice your craft outside the classroom exist through the program’s dance showcases and through the Theatre Arts and Musical Theatre Programs. The Musical Theatre Program’s productions include two major musicals and scenes productions while the WCU Theatre Mainstage Season presents plays along with many student-directed shows.
