Description of Program: The Department of Dance at Brenau University educates the individual as a dance practitioner, scholar, and artist in a creative, supportive, and challenging environment. The department provides a foundation in classical ballet, modern, movement/methods of the African Diaspora, and jazz dance. Students are encouraged to explore their values while creating a personal philosophy as an artist with responsibility and integrity. Certain courses are common ground to dance majors at Brenau regardless of their areas of specialization. A solid core of technical training with additional courses in choreography, production, pedagogy, dance history, and courses related to the major give a foundation and depth to students’ knowledge of the art form. Performing gives the students the background and experience to begin making works of their own.
