You love to perform.
And whether your interest is becoming a “triple threat” (a performer proficient in acting, singing and dance) or focusing your talent on dancing for musical theatre, Wilkes offers classes that will meet your educational needs.
The Musical Theatre program at Wilkes begins with a strong foundation in Classical Ballet and continues with Modern, Jazz and Tap. All levels of dance in every area are offered every semester so you can stay in shape, keep improving and learn, learn, learn!
Dance classes at Wilkes are fun, fast-paced and rigorous with opportunities for both the experienced dancer and the novice.
As an ever more important storytelling aspect of theatre, dance helps prepare the
student for the current challenges in musical theatre performance with courses in
Choreography and Dance History.
The minor in Dance requires 18 credits above DAN 100. Advanced project in dance composition, under the supervision of the minor advisor, is also required.
Opportunities for performance in dance are plentiful. In addition to the annual Spring Dance Concert, select students have the opportunity to dance with Ballet Northeast.
