Minor in Dance

Requirements for the Minor:

A total of six credits required to achieve a minor in Dance.  Students must take ADA-130 The Dance Experience; one History course (ADA-140, ADA-142 or ADA-153); One Dance elective chosen in consultation with the Director of Dance (ADA-150, ADA-160, or WMC-354T); and one credit (depending on the student’s interest) from Choreography Honors courses ADA-295H and ADA-296H, or Choreography ADA-350 or Dance Project ADA-490. Two full Practicum credits are also required in Dance technique to be completed over six terms of study.

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 separate dance style as well as the practicum ADA 050. Rehearsal and Production. The ADA 050. Rehearsal and Production 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 class during a single term in a given academic year, only one will count towards the three course sequence, which is required to earn one course credit.  During the senior year, students may request up to two full dance practicum credits towards graduation. 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.
