The Dance Option provides students with a broad base of cultural and historical knowledge as well as technique, pedagogy and repertoire in the various dance genres. The creative process is fostered by inclusion of production skills, the art of choreography, and performance opportunities. This foundation will prepare students to further their study, teach, choreograph, and/or perform. Graduates may seek employment in dance education, dance studios, community service organizations, and as production assistants, choreographers, teacher assistants, dance therapy assistants, and as dancers in the arts and entertainment industry. Students must be physically able to participate in studio courses. As of 2006, CT’s State Board of Education requires public school K-12 dance certification for dance teachers. The Dance Option provides the required dance courses for this education certification. The Transfer Program articulated with Central Connecticut State University guarantees acceptance of major dance credits.

General Education Core course listings and definitions appear on General Education Core . Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required.
