Dance — Liberal Arts Certificate

13 credits

The dance program cultivates agile and fluid bodies and minds in the movement arts. It is an open admissions program. All dance courses are open to the general population and all are encouraged to explore dance. The dance certificate includes studies in physical practice, theoretical inquiry, creative activity, and interdisciplinary studies in music, theatre, and kinesiology.

Students interested in dance have numerous performance and creative opportunities, and many are open to all students, regardless of certificate status. Dance certificate students are strongly encouraged to participate in the main-stage performance and choreography opportunities and in theatre and opera productions. These are vital components of studying dance and are the primary way to share dance with the greater community. Many of the creative opportunities are credit-generating and will fold into your track of studies. Dance certificate students may also decide to become involved in student/faculty collaborative research projects. The Eau Claire arts community offers a variety of avenues for dancers to teach, perform, and choreograph both on and off campus. This rich environment provides a safe and nurturing environment for emerging artists.
