Requirements for the Minor:

A total of 6 credits are required to achieve a minor in dance.

Dance Technique Classes:

For dance minors, students must complete one full year of practicum credit in a specific dance form. For their second full practicum credit, however, minors must pursue two terms of classes in a different dance style as well as the practicum ADA 051 , which will be held winter term and entails participation in the Winter Dance Concert series. To gain transcript recognition for dance technique classes, students must register no later than the two-week add/drop period, and achieve a passing grade from the faculty instructor. Requests to register for practicum transcript recognition after the add-drop period will not be honored. If a student registers for more than one dance practicum per term, only one practicum will count towards the three-course sequence, which is required to earn one course credit. Minors are required to complete two full credits of practicum. Such requests are made to the registrar during the senior year transcript audit (or its equivalent for those who plan to graduate early). Each full dance practicum credit is accumulated from three previous passing grades (any combination of theater and dance practicum). No more than two such graduation credits are available, whatever the discipline (music, theater, or dance). Students are advised to select full practicum credits in whichever area best suits their academic program.
