Palomar College Learning For Success

About the Dance Program

Mission Statement

The Dance Program prepares the student for employment in the field of dance and dance-related professions. The various degrees and certificates provide students with the basic skills necessary for involvement in community dance activities, such as teaching in recreation centers, community centers and private studios; or performing or choreographing for community events. These degrees and certificates also prepare dancers for the entertainment industry such as theme parks (Disney, Knotts Berry Farm, Legoland, Seaworld, Wild Animal Park), the music industry, as back-up dancers for musical artists, and a range of professional theatrical dance opportunities. Transfer students should consult the four-year college or university catalog for specific requirements or see a Palomar College counselor.
