The Dance Unit offers a three-year (full time only) Bachelors of Arts in Dance

facilitate students in developing their performance technique and gain valuable
skills in choreographing, researching, and teaching dance.

BA students have the opportunity to explore dance through courses such as:
Caribbean Dance | Ballet Technique | Modern Dance Technique
Dance Education | Dance Injuries and Conditioning | Indian Dance
Dance Composition | Dance History | Introduction to Movement Analysis

The Certificate in Dance and Dance Education equips students with a foundation in dance that
allows them to teach to a national standard and build their dance technique.
The BA in Dance provides students with the practical, cultural, and theoretical
knowledge of dance required to develop their own artistic practice.
Performance opportunities exist throughout the year and students perform for
campus events as well as public shows.

Certificate students develop their dance practice through courses such as:
Performance Techniques | Teaching Methodology | Caribbean Dance History
Dance Education | Caribbean Folk Dance | Teaching Practice
