MINOR in Dance
The dance program at Texas Tech University provides its students with a rigorous yet accessible curriculum, opportunities for engagement with dance in a variety of contexts, and a supportive, student-centered learning environment. By integrating the practical and the theoretical, the program serves as a vital force in the cultural and intellectual life of our society. The program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD).
The Dance minor requires 24 credit hours and at least four or more long semesters to complete; students should audition and begin the minor as early as possible in their academic career.
What Sets Us Apart
Our dance minor allows students to continue their dance training while pursuing a different major. The minor requires students to take Dance Production Activities twice, which allows for two performance opportunities. Students are required to take at least one course from jazz, ballet, and contemporary technique classes, but are allowed to choose two additional technique classes of their choice.
