Dance Department


The Dance Department offers courses in dance technique, performance, body modalities, and dance appreciation, all of which are designed for the dance student, the liberal arts student, as well as any other student seeking personal enrichment.


Students may complete an A.A. degree as well as a certificate in dance. Students who earn an A.A. degree in dance may transfer to a university to continue their dance education, as many of the courses offered transfer to the University of California and California State University systems, as well private universities.
