The Dance concentration allows students to engage in their dance passion, inviting them to develop their dance technique while discovering elements critical to a successful production process. Students will have opportunities to gain hands-on experiences as arts administrators through experiences in student-run business ventures like Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre or Arts Café.
Be prepared to lead in touring companies, festivals, dance councils and other organizations by managing clients and personnel, recruiting artists, engaging communities, and more as you dive into the world of arts management! See the list of the core classes in Arts Administration.
