Dance Minor

The dance minor program is designed to give students dance technique, choreographic, and performance training with particular attention to artistry and the context of dance in society. Within the liberal arts education tradition of Le Moyne, the dance minor is designed as an important ingredient in the development of students for whom intellectual, physical, and artistic inquiry are linked. This 15-credit program offers the student an opportunity to explore multiple approaches to physical expression while intellectually investigating dance in its broader context. Dance minor students are asked to fulfill six credits of dance minor requirements and a further nine credits through various electives.
