Whether you’re working toward your dream of performing on stage, improving your health, or learning the history of dance and artistic movement, Missouri Western’s minor in dance is a valuable program.
Our dance minor focuses on giving introduction to concert dance movement, consisting of ballet, modern and jazz. The introductory combination reaches students from all backgrounds, helping them move and be aware of their position on stage.
