Dance is an elective, non-major course of study. Requirements for dance courses vary with the instructor and subject matter, but each technique course demands a skill level of achievement, attendance, and demonstrable improvement at an acceptable level. Several courses involve written testing and/or research papers. Courses within a single area of study in dance--ballet, modern, or jazz--may only be taken for credit in ascending numerical order. A student may not register in one level and subsequently receive credit in a lower level. Students may, however, with the permission of the instructor, audit classes in an any sequence. Please consult with the teacher of the course for any audit privileges.
