Majors and non-majors have the opportunity to study Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap, Middle Eastern Dance, African Dance, and Hip Hop, Latin Social Dance, and Ballroom Dance. Courses in Choreography, Dance Production, Acting, Dance History, and Dance Perceptions round out the dance program to offer professional experiences to all.

In addition to the essential foundations of dance, students have choreographic and performance opportunities. Each semester dance concerts are held in the University Theatre featuring student, faculty, and guest choreographers and performers. Students have opportunities to perform at events on and off campus and at the American College Dance Festival.

And dance classes are available to all CSUDH students who are most welcome to enroll in dance classes and participate in performances.

CSUDH students work closely with a highly trained and experienced dance faculty. Students also have the opportunity to participate in master dance classes by regional and nationally known artists.
