In the Dance Option and Dance Minor, it is strongly suggested that students pursuing a career in dance study ballet, modern and jazz dance techniques. Also, students should take advantage of all available choreography and performance opportunities and view as many dance performances as possible.

In addition to high school graduation requirements, the student should study art, music, acting, literature, philosophy, and kinesiology.

While attending community college, students should seek choreographic and performance experience in theatre presentations and attend as many dance performances as possible. Most dance technique courses taken at community colleges in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and other selected dance styles will transfer to satisfy the lower division requirements for the Dance Option major and Dance minor.
