Dance, as an academic discipline,
encompasses the elements of dance as a performing art, as well as
the science of dance as movement. The mission of the dance program
is to promote dance as a medium of communication and expression uniquely
effective in the conveyance of meaning, emotion and cultural values.
The mission is also to train dancers in sound dance
techniques so their bodies are effective instruments for this artistic
expression. The techniques of the program increases students' level
of physical fitness, coordination, and grace through dance training,
and presents dance as a rigorous and specialized area of the performing
arts, demanding a high level of physical preparation as well as a
thorough understanding of aesthetics.
The Dance mission includes the following
- Creating an environment in which
the general student population may experience dance as a means to
enhance physical fitness and wellness, understand and appreciate other
cultures and periods of history, interact cooperatively with men and
women of various ages and cultural/ethic backgrounds, and learn aesthetics
dance students to transfer as dance majors to public state and private
colleges and universities
- Providing preparation for careers
in dance including the areas of choreography, dance performance and
- Maintaining diversity of instruction
and course offerings
