In the dance program at Snow College, we are committed to artistic excellence through fostering an inclusive, supportive and creative learning environment by providing students with an in depth and broad-ranging curriculum with an equal emphasis in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, social dance, hip hop combined with coursework that includes improvisation, performance, pedagogy and somatic practices in yoga and pilates. This broad emphasis of the program makes it unique among other dance departments in Utah and across the United States.
Snow College Dance Department also offers students a year-long company experience in contemporary, ballet and social dance through participation in either the Snow College Dance Ensemble or the Snow College Ballroom Company. In addition, Snow College regularly invites national and international guest artists to teach, explore and create new works on the students. Our dancers are presented with numerous performance and choreographic opportunities including mainstage productions, student produced concerts, collaborations with other university dance programs and regular participation in the American College Dance Conference.
Our mission is to produce unique dance artists while cultivating a healthy lifestyle for our students through the integration of mind, body and spirit.
