Dance: Pedagogy, Minor
The Dance Pedagogy Minor prepares students to integrate the teaching of dance into educational scenarios in the public or private sectors. Courses such as Wellness for Dancers, Creative Dance for Children, Teaching of Dance and Dance Composition, among other courses, will equip you with the necessary tools to be an effective, safe, and knowledgeable dance teacher. Graduates with this minor may pursue careers in dance studios, pre-schools, elementary and middle schools, specialized arts camps, fitness centers, and youth and community centers. Students who major in Education, Psychology, Exercise Science, Theatre, Communication, Business Administration, Art and Music, among others, have successfully completed the Dance Pedagogy Minor and integrated their skills and knowledge into their professions. Students who attain this minor are also eligible for the Creative Dance Professinal Licensure through the PA Department of Education. An audition is required for acceptance to the Dance Pedagogy Minor.
