What is dance?
Studying dance as a minor within the theatre degree program at UNH opens your options for pursuing a career in dance or a related field. You’ll take classes in the history of dance, dance composition, choreography and performance, learning techniques in jazz, ballet, tap and even aerial dance. Combine this minor with any major at UNH to enhance your career opportunities in areas such as theatre, education and music.

Curriculum & Requirements
Students minoring in dance keep open the option of pursuing a career in dance by cultivating and maintaining a high level of dance skill while still having the opportunity to major in another area of interest outside the Department of Theatre and Dance. Minors are encouraged to audition for all performance opportunities including faculty-directed dance concerts as well as student-created dance showcases. In addition, students who major in theatre or one of its theatre options may minor in dance provided no more than 8 credits are used to satisfy both major and minor requirements.
