|UWRF Dance Program|
The UWRF Dance Program is committed to student-centered learning experiences, which values individuals and their creativity. Our students are encouraged to pursue their academic goals while actively participating in artistic and cultural experiences. The environment in the dance program is cooperative rather than competitive. We strive to provide a community atmosphere that encourages faculty and students alike, to take creative risks and challenge ourselves to achieve levels of excellence in all of our artistic and academic endeavors.
Dance Education Minor
The dance program offers a dance education minor and a diverse number of classes, performances, and cultural experiences. Dance course offerings include: history/appreciation, world dance, composition, improvisation, repertory and production; various levels of ballet, jazz, modern, and social technique; teaching courses in children’s creative movement, social and jazz dance; as well as independent study courses.
The Master of Science in Education Fine Arts program is a 30 credit program for the professional enhancement of fine arts educators. It provides an interdisciplinary perspective on contemporary arts education, enhanced by course work in the student’s arts specialty and in teacher education. The Track I program is designed for educators already certified in art, music, dance, or theatre. Students not previously certified in one of these arts disciplines would need to complete a program for initial certification designed in consultation with a faculty advisor.
