Known for excellence in dance education, performance and choreography, Collin College’s
Dance Department has a reputation for preparing students for prestigious university
dance programs. As a student here, you’ll have the opportunity to study multiple genres
of dance technique (ballet, modern, jazz, tap and ballroom), as well as courses in
performance, improvisation, choreography and dance appreciation. Through studying
the art of dance, you will develop self-discipline, recognize diversity and expand
your awareness of aesthetics.
Dance courses focus on movement fundamentals, technique, performance and choreography. The curriculum provides a comprehensive approach to learning dance by integrating the aesthetics, historical, critical, cultural and fundamental aspects of dance as an art form.
Students interested in additional dance experience may audition for the student dance company, Collin Dance Ensemble. The mission of the company is to produce contemporary dance works at the highest level of artistic excellence. The dance company attends and performs at the American College Dance Festival annually and has received the Gala Award ten times and performed at the National festival, as well. Dance auditions for the dance company are held prior to the Fall semester.
