Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by School

The Choreography for Stage and Screen Minor explores the different techniques used to create dances for the stage and screen, including new media. By researching classic and contemporary film and stage musicals and existing choreographic works, combined with technical skills, students learn methods used to generate movement vocabulary and gain practical experience in choreographing for multiple mediums.

This minor consists of three lower-division courses, one upper-division course and 7 units of elective courses. Students must be in good academic standing to be admitted. No previous dance experience is required.

Required Upper-Division Course (4 units)

Dance Technique Courses*

Students may apply up to 2 units of dance technique courses (DANC 180-189c) toward the minor. Additional dance technique courses may be taken for general elective credit.

Students with previous dance experience may place into intermediate (b-level), intermediate/advanced (c-level) and/or advanced (d-level) courses. Such students must submit a Prerequisite Waiver Form, which requires the instructor’s approval.

Total Units Required: 18
