Dance at CCSU

The CCSU Dance Program has four tracks:

  • New! Bachelor of Science in Dance Education

    Under the supervision and mentorship of our extraordinary and diverse faculty, students will experience the canon of American modern dance, learning to understand and respect the lineage while embracing the future of contemporary forms.

    This program does not lead to initial dance certification.

    120 Credits

  • Cross-Endorsement in Dance Teacher Certification

    For students working towards teacher certification in Elementary Education, Physical Education, or Music Education, the cross-endorsement in dance allows for a second teaching certification by taking additional courses from the dance curriculum.

    30 Credits.

  • Dance Minor

    The Dance Minor allows students new to dance or those who have danced all their lives to continue pursuing their love for dance while working towards majors in other fields. From ballet to hip hop and from jazz to West Indian, students will practice tachnique, study dance history, and learn how to create their own choreography.

    18 Credits.

  • Formal Pathway to Dance Teacher Certification

    This is a specialized program created with the Connecticut State Department of Education to certify those public school dance teachers who have not yet been certified. The program is only open to currently employed public school dance teachers. For further information please contact Catherine J. Fellows, CCSU Dance Education Coordinator. 860 832 2167
