Dance Minor

If your interests for a major lie elsewhere in the University’s wide array of program offerings, but you have a real interest and passion for Dance, the Dance minor might be for you.

Many of our Dance minors have significant dance training prior to coming to UL Lafayette, and want to continue participating in dance classes, honing their skills, and feeding their passion for dance even while pursuing another line of study as their major. Or, our minors want to gain dance skills that complement their area of study to enhance their career options once they complete their academic training.

Our minors come to us from a huge variety of the other majors on campus, so there’s no restriction on who can pursue a Dance minor. If you’re interested in the Dance minor, you will choose between two options: Ballet or Modern dance. This division ensures that you have a solid grounding in one form, enabling you to dig deep into a dance style and to gain a more developed set of skills in your chosen style.

Minors are welcome to audition for any of the Dance performances during the academic year, but are not required to do so.  In order to complete the Dance minor, you simply need to complete the required coursework in your chosen minor track.
