The dance major curriculum builds upon the foundation of Dance as an art form and a humanistic experience. Studio and theory coursework are designed to integrate practical dance experience with more formal academic study so that the student is educated as a dancer who can perform, write, and speak about the art of Dance and dancing.
The Dance program is housed in the Department of Theatre Arts & Dance and offers coursework for the Dance major (in a general track or performance track), the Dance minor, and for the student who wishes to pursue dance as an elective or general education. Dance majors earn a B.A. degree and are prepared for advance study in graduate school as well as careers in performing, teaching, and related work in the fields of business and health care.
The LMU Dance program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance and takes part in the American College Dance Festival.
