Dance, as an academic discipline, encompasses the elements of dance as a performing art, as well as the science of dance as movement. The mission of the dance program is to promote dance as a medium of communication and expression uniquely effective in the conveyance of meaning, emotion and cultural values. The mission is also to train dancers in sound dance techniques so their bodies are effective instruments for this artistic expression. The techniques of the program increases students' level of physical fitness, coordination, and grace through dance training, and presents dance as a rigorous and specialized area of the performing arts, demanding a high level of physical preparation as well as a thorough understanding of aesthetics.
The Dance Mission includes the following objectives:
1. Creating an environment in which the general student population may experience dance as a means to enhance physical fitness and wellness, understand and appreciate other cultures and periods of history, interact cooperatively with men and women of various ages and cultural/ethic backgrounds, and learn aesthetics.
2. Preparing dance students to transfer as dance majors to public state and private colleges and universities.

4. Maintaining diversity of instruction and course offerings.
