The dance program
is designed to provide academic and studio training in the areas of ballet,
jazz, tap, musical theatre dance, and modern dance. Its goals are two-fold: 1)
to further the training objectives of the acting and music theatre performance
programs; 2) to be available for the student wishing to pursue the study of
dance as a minor. Dance performance opportunities are open by audition to all
Viterbo University students and include music theatre productions, operas, and
dance concerts. Students who wish to test out of Fundamentals of Dance or
Introduction to Dance Techniques, and/or the beginning levels of other dance
classes, may participate in qualifying auditions to do so.
