The minor in dance is designed to provide the student with basic foundational courses in dance technique, as well as in choreography, history, and production, all with a focus toward performance. Students will receive dance technique training in ballet, modern, tap, and jazz. In addition, students will study composition and gain expertise in choreography. Students will study dance history and will be involved in the many aspects of creating a performance, from advertising to backstage and house management. All dance students are encouraged to participate in the annual dance concert as well as informal studio showings and the activities of the UMaine Dance Club. Production credits may be available for these efforts.

Students are required to take a total of 18 credits.
