Anderson University Dance Program
The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Anderson University offers three majors in dance:
- Dance Performance
- Dance Business (with tracks in business administration and non-profit business)
- Complementary Major in Dance (to be combined with a second major)
The university's state-of-the-art dance studio, performance space in Reardon Auditorium, and close proximity to Indianapolis make AU the ideal place in which to study, experience, and excel in dance.
Dance technique courses include ballet, modern, jazz, and tap as well as musical theatre dance forms and world dance forms. Theoretical courses include dance history survey, period dance, dance improvisation, and composition.
The Falls School of Business has partnered with the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance to offer the 51-hour Dance Business major to include dance technique and dance theory classes, in addition to marketing, management, and accounting classes. Within the Dance Business major, students have the option of two tracks: non-profit business and business administration. Students must also complete an internship before graduation.
Dance courses are taught by some of the finest professionals in the field. Students have the opportunity to perform in two major dance events each year (Fall Into Dance and Spring Into Dance) as well as in Candles and Carols, the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance Christmas concert that is broadcast internationally. Dancers may also choose to audition for the musical theatre and opera productions through the lyric opera program.
The Dance Program hires guest choreographers every year, allowing students the chance to experience different dance forms in the professional dance field. Guest artists hosted by the AU Dance Program include professional choreographers and companies from across the country.
