NOTES: The dance minor focuses on the development of skills and teaching strategies that will enhance the student's ability to teach or work with dance in a variety of settings.
The Dance minor can be selected by students in conjunction with most other majors at the University. Approval by the major program is required for this minor.
If a student wishes to teach in the public schools, licensure must be obtained through the appropriate major. Suggested combinations of programs of study for public school teacher licensure are a Dance Minor with a Theatre Arts Education major or a Dance Minor plus a Physical Education major. At present there is no public school licensure for dance in Colorado's public schools.
A grade of “B” or better must be achieved in a technique class in order to progress to the next level.
To complete a minor in Dance, a student is not required to earn upper-division credits (300-400) in the minor.
