Mission and Philosophy

The Dance Department offers a variety of classes focusing on educating dancers in ballet, modern, and jazz technique, history, improvisation, and choreography. Other styles such as hip-hop, ethnic, salsa, etc...are also experienced throughout the year. We have an excellent relationship with the Arizona Dance Community, ASU and touring dance artists for master classes that are integrated into the curriculum.
