Dance Studies

Overview

The dance studies curriculum at Folsom Lake College offers students the opportunity to develop a breadth of multi-disciplinary dance abilities and knowledge.

Career options such as performing, choreography, dance studio business ownership, dance movement therapy, and non-profit arts management will enhance students’ appreciation of dance as a global industry, as well as a cross-culturally meaningful expressive form. Comprehensive, academically rigorous classes will sharpen their leadership and critical thinking skills, preparing students for success in dance either at a university or in the workplace.
