Millikin University - Decatur, IL
Dance Minor

The minor in dance is a comprehensive 21 credit course of study designed to introduce students to an array of styles and techniques. In addition to completing the core requirements in ballet, jazz, tap, modern, theatre dance, and choreography, students will choose two disciplines in which to complete an eight credit emphasis. Support courses such as acting, art or music history, or nutrition enhance the minor experience. 

  Additional requirements include:
• participation in the Dance Lab, a group of
dancers selected by audition for the
purpose of dancing in-class assignments
in one of our two choreography classes
• an individual choreography project to be
presented for a live audience either in
our annual dance concert or other
performance venues
Dance Opportunities
Dance minors are a vital part of the Millikin dance culture and have many opportunities to take part in exciting activities such as:
• master classes with visiting artists
• performance opportunities with our Performing Dance Ensemble or mainstage musicals (auditions required)
• choreography opportunities
• classroom assistant opportunities
with university dance faculty
     Declaring the Minor

  While students may begin studying dance at Millikin beginning in their first semester, a minor in dance may not be officially declared until the end of the sophomore year. All courses taken prior to that will be credited toward the minor requirements. Students interested in pursuing a minor in dance should consult with their academic advisor. 

*The Department of Theatre and Dance is not responsible for course conflicts that may prevent a student from completing the minor or for overload fees that may occur due to scheduling*

Specific questions regarding the minor in dance may be addressed to the Director of the Dance Program
