Crossing Paths - A Contemporary Dance Concert
Summer Dance Intensive
June 22 - July 1
Campus Housing Available
The dance program at CCSU is designed to nurture artists who teach. With the new BS Dance Education, students will prepare for certification to teach dance in the public school system. 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.
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.
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.
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.
