Welcome to Dance

The dance minor at UNC Asheville prepares students to have a developed knowledge of their bodies as dancers and to be collegiate dance-makers who are connected to a question-based approach to research in movement and writing. Importantly the dance minor helps students articulate their voices in the world through a burgeoning dialogue between dance movement practices, engaged scholarship and, creative processes.

Classes are taught in the dance studio in the Sherrill Center, and student dancers typically perform once a semester in the university’s Carol Belk Theatre, and sometimes in other venues.

Dancers active in the Asheville arts community also teach courses as part of UNC Asheville’s dance program.
