Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - By Degree Type Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - By Degree Type

The Associate of Arts Degree (AA) with a concentration in Dance is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year university to major or minor in dance, and will benefit any student planning to enter a dance-related profession, including dance performance and direction, primary or secondary dance education, arts administration, or dance for physical fitness. 

A comprehensive dance education will develop skills required to create, perform, communicate and understand dance. These skills are acquired through the study of technique, improvisation, choreography, performance, history, culture and anatomy.  Students who declare dance as their concentration should be advised by a member of the dance faculty when selecting their courses.
