Welcome to Dance!

Dance

Welcome to dance at Pacific Lutheran University!  We offer a Dance minor in the Department of Theatre & Dance under the School of Arts and Communication.  As a recently revamped minor, dance at Pacific Lutheran University provides unique opportunities in performance, choreography, dance history, dance production, dance technique (including modern, jazz, ballet, hip-hop and tap), yoga, social dance forms, and healing arts of mind and body. Selected courses are cross-referenced with Physical Education/Movement Studies, and two to four classes are offered every semester along with other co-curricular opportunities. Students can receive credit for their participation in these activities. Additionally, student choreography is emphasized in order to help nurture aspiring artists into becoming successful professionals.  Along with the student choreography, faculty and guest choreographers regularly create original works and set repertory on the students.
