The dance program at Pacific University combine practical experience with rigorous academics. The program provides opportunities to perform, choreograph and study dance’s history and a cross-cultural perspective, all of which integrate theory and practice. Dance students put on two major dance concerts in a year and can participate in the Pacific Dance Ensemble. Students are able to practice technique in courses devoted to ballet, contemporary and jazz and study dance history, choreography, pedagogy, kinesiology and world cultures. They perform diverse choreography including classical ballet, musical theatre, African, hip-hop and contemporary.
