Dance is an art form that takes both imagination and discipline. In the Dance Program at Gonzaga University, you will develop your art as a dancer while learning the skills to turn your passion into a profession.

What You'll Study

The program, currently offering a major and minor in dance, explores a variety of dance styles and techniques including: musical theatre, urban, modern, jazz, and ballet. There are many opportunities each year to experience the thrill of performance through both faculty and student choreographed concerts as well as participation in the American College Dance Association regional conferences.

Get Involved

The Dance Program aims to inspire others through the Dance for Parkinson’s service project, community performances, and the ZagDance program, a free elementary after-school dance program taught by our dance students. The program also hosts professional dance workshops and is home to Dance Club with classes, events, and performance opportunities for all Gonzaga students.
