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

Gonzaga Dance offers a major and minor exploring a variety of dance styles, production methods, and techniques including: musical theatre, contemporary, ballet, jazz, dance production, choreography, pop culture, and specialty courses such as contemporary/modern through an indigenous lens. With a dance season of 6-8 concerts, there are many opportunities each year to experience the thrill of performance through both faculty and student choreographed concerts.

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.
