Dance technique options include, but are not limited to, Ballet, Music-based Jazz, Modern, Dances of the African Diaspora, Tap, Alaska Native Dance, Salsa, Hip Hop, Social Dance, Capoeira and Dance for Musical Theatre. 

Theory Courses include Dance Appreciation, Theory and Improvisation, Dance Composition and Interdisciplinary Dance Studies. The program also offers Special Topics courses that have included Dance in Education. 

Production is a key component of the program with the UAA Dance Ensemble as the core performing group. Course offerings in both dance and theatre support the performance mission of the program such as Dance Repertory and Performance and Theatrical Production Techniques.

Theatre Courses

Theatre CoursesTheatre is the art of giving life in performance to dramatic literature. Production is at the very heart of our award-winning Theatre and Dance program. Each season UAA Theatre and Dance produces four plays and two dance concerts on its "modified thrust" Mainstage, and in the Jerry Harper Studio Theatre, a fully-equipped, black-box space. 

Student-directed scenes, one-acts, and full-length plays are also presented yearly in the Harper. 

Department plays are cast at open auditions, and on average more than 100 majors, non-majors and members of the community are involved in our productions each year. 

All Theatre and Dance majors are required to participate in Mainstage productions and/or related departmental activities.
