Dance provides another lens through which to interpret the world. Students who take classes in dance and/or pursue a dance minor immerse themselves in a program that envisions dance as an integral part of the robust, rigorous, liberal arts curriculum at Davidson.
Dance classes focus on theory as well as practice, incorporating the varied physical, cultural, historic, and social attributes of the subject into each course. Classes are open to students of all backgrounds and at all levels of experience.
A minor in dance provides students with a range of experiences that encourage creative exploration and critical thinking.
In addition to their work in class, students are encouraged to participate in the various master classes and workshops offered on campus, as well as to pursue summer study or internships at national dance festivals.
