Dance Curriculum

Central Michigan University's Department of Communication and Dramatic Arts offers the dance minor. As you explore career opportunities that include dance, consider these key features that distinguish CMU's program:

  • One of the most comprehensive dance minors offered at a
    Michigan university.
  • Instruction by faculty with years of professional performance experience.
  • Outstanding studio and production facilities.
  • Performance opportunities with University Theatre Dance Company and other groups.

The dance minor is one of several coordinated programs in the performing arts disciplines. The university also offers majors in theatre and interpretation and in music theatre - an interdisciplinary pre-professional program combining course work in music, theatre and dance.

Dance faculty members and guest artists instruct students in a variety of dance styles. Your dance curriculum may include courses in modern, tap, jazz and ballet dance techniques, choreography, dance history, folk and square dance, social dance, and concert production. You will focus on the technical and performance aspects of dance.

Because individual programs vary and courses are offered alternating semesters, you will need to consult an advisor before beginning your dance program.
