Move yourself. Move others. A minor in dance gives you an outlet to explore the creative boundaries of the human body. Dance at Hillsdale includes ballet, modern, choreography, and social dance, as well as history and theatre requirements that give depth to your passion for self-expression. Our extracurricular dance company, the Tower Dancers, performs new choreography annually. Dance is offered as a minor only.
“It is essential to foster creativity and enable dancers to efficiently extend themselves through diverse qualities of movement.”
