What is Dance at WVU like?
Our program is the first BA in Dance in West Virginia. The major offers a variety of dance styles and dance related courses.
While emphasis is on technique and theory, on- and off-campus performance and production opportunities allow you to fully immerse yourself and experience the creative process that dance has to offer. We work to enrich your overall dance education, instilling the importance and contributions that Dance has to offer and its place within our culture and society.
There are many performance opportunities on and off campus. These include informal dance showcases, the annual dance concert, musicals, as well as local, regional and national dance festivals and conferences.
Students enrolled in the Dance BA program must also declare a minor.
