The SMC Dance Department’s mission is to prepare the serious dance student for university transfer and to provide dance training and enrichment for both the beginner to the advanced dancer. The department offers a comprehensive curriculum with a broad range of dance courses to nurture versatile dance artists. The dance department encourages students to think independently, to value creative thought and diversity, and to be responsible global citizens.
The Dance Department's goal is to prepare students for future careers in performance, choreography, teaching and related careers in dance. The department offers a wide array of dance classes designed to cultivate technique, creativity and performance skills.
