A minor in dance at Creighton will enhance your educational experience. You’ll primarily learn ballet technique coupled with other dance forms such as modern, jazz and tap, while also studying composition and performance. Students have the opportunity to publicly perform a variety of dance styles each semester and work with professional peer choreographers and instructors.
Students study in the Lied Education Center for the Arts, which houses two performance spaces. The Mainstage is a beautiful 300-seat theater used for dance performances. A large studio theater serves as an alternate performance space. The large dance studio features a professional sprung floor and mirrored walls. Most ballet classes have live piano accompaniment.
The dance minor can increase opportunities in securing employment in the performing arts. As a dance minor, you will learn:
- Basic and advanced dance techniques
- How to perform on stage
- Ballet as well as modern, jazz, tap and other styles of dance
Along with Creighton’s core requirements, there are 18 credits within a dance minor curriculum.
A student may not declare a minor until he or she has been accepted into a major. Students declare minors with the minor declaration form.
Eighteen credits of coursework are required to complete a minor. Students must achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 in courses toward the minor.
