The Dance minor at Avila

Maximize your creative and technical abilities and learn about the human body in motion with Avila’s Dance minor. While designed for students interested in dance or who want to complement an affiliated performing arts major, the Dance minor curriculum will teach any interested student the basic technical knowledge and cultural context of several dance styles, including tap, jazz, modern or ballet. Regardless of your experience, you’ll graduate with a broad foundation of performance and choreography.

Invest in your future with a minor from Avila. By stacking a Dance minor with one of our many complementary undergraduate majors, you’re becoming a more well-rounded citizen of the world, able to view situations from a number of different perspectives. With businesses looking for employees who can contribute to company culture and not just the bottom line, an Avila minor means you’ll have an advantage over other candidates. Finally, with our faculty’s decades of performance experience and one-on-one teaching, you’ll be able to overcome any challenge you meet in or out of the classroom.
