About Us

Thank you for your interest in Dance at NC A&T State University! Below is information from the Student Dance Handbook that you might find helpful in deciding how you would like to proceed:

Intent of Program

The dance minor at NC A&T focuses on diversity that is inherent in the course offerings and distinguishes us from other programs. The emphasis of many dance programs researched is the traditional approach to dance focusing on modern and ballet. Most universities include a few courses in world dance forms. NC A&T is a Historically Black College and University, and the intent of the dance minor curriculum is to highlight the dance forms, histories, theories and techniques that most uniquely reflect African American experience in the African Diaspora and in America. At the same time, students will be exposed to modern and ballet technique and dance history.
