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.
Alumni performing professionally, school dance directors, college professors, non-profit employees, entertainment lawyers, etc.
