Dance

The mission of the MiraCosta Dance department is to create artistic and academic excellence by engaging our students in a diversity of dance techniques, choreography, performance and scholarly practices. We foster student engagement through creative and critical thinking and value artistic exploration enriching the individual, classroom and community.

Students may take courses to prepare for a dance major to transfer to a four-year institution, to earn an A.A. degree in dance, or to meet general education requirements. Performance opportunities are available to both majors and non-majors.

Career options include professional performance or choreography; dance studio or company management; child development; dance therapy; movement analysis; dance ethnology; dance criticism; dance science; academic research; and teaching.
