Minor: Concentration in Dance

Dance is an integral part of any performing arts program, which is why the Department of Theatre Arts at Lewis & Clark offers a Minor in Theatre with a Concentration in Dance.

Dance students develop technical and performance skills and study the aesthetics, history, and criticism of dance. From improvisational techniques to classical ballet, from modern and postmodern dance forms to sound body mechanics, strength, and flexibility, our students receive a thorough education in the physical arts.

Students in the Dance program have many opportunities to perform in faculty- and student-choreographed work, including the annual Dance Extravaganza. In addition, they often participate in the annual Northwest Regional American College Dance Festival during spring semester. Student choreography can be presented for review at the festival, which offers classes, workshops, and performances over four days. Portland has a vibrant dance scene, and students are encouraged to see as many of the diverse professional performances as possible.

Students who choose a Theatre minor with a concentration in Dance collaborate with talented faculty and peers, who work together to aid in the growth and development of each dancer’s understanding of this beautiful art.

    Do you offer a Master Program in Concentration in Dance? Can dancers at any level begin the program?
