Dance Minor

Dance Minor

Dance is an art form that transcends culture, class, race, and religion. To that end, dance at Le Moyne College is open to students of all majors and levels of experience. Students seeking engagement in intellectual, artistic, social, creative, and physical learning will find dance at Le Moyne rewarding. The Department of Visual and Performing Arts specializes in training the whole artist. Our Dance Minor program is designed to foster student growth in dance technique; provide choreographic and performance training; and develop knowledge of dance artistry, and of dance in cultural context. Through their participation in a variety of fun and challenging classes, or within our active extra-curricular dance ensembles, our Dance Minor students develop intellectually, physically and artistically in a supportive and social environment.


The Dance Minor program is a great environment for students interested in exploring the fundamentals of dance and its historical and social relevance. This Minor offers the student an opportunity to explore multiple approaches to physical expression while intellectually investigating dance in its broader context. Dance Minor students are asked to fulfill six (6) credits in the Dance Minor core, and a further nine (9) credits through various electives.
