The Minor in Modern Dance
Please note: The current Minor in Modern Dance will only apply to the classes of 2017 and 2018. Starting with the Class of 2019 (current sophomores) or Class of 2020 (current first years), the Minor in the Dance Department will no longer be split into a Ballet Minor or a Modern Dance Minor. Instead, there will be one Minor in Dance. Students will still have the option to concentrate their physical practice in a specific dance technique.
