The College of DuPage Dance program encompasses a curriculum that stresses discipline, endurance and awareness of body mechanics creating a versatile, multi-faceted dancer. The program collaborates closely with the College of DuPage Theater and Music departments providing a wide range of skills that can broaden potential career paths.

Each semester students and faculty participate in a dance performance exposing dancers to the experience of working within a dance company as well as practicum experience in the production areas of theater, dance, stage-design technology and theater management.  

Course Descriptions


Every semester students gain performance experience as a dance company and practicum experience in the production areas of theater, dance, design and theater management. Students audition, rehearse and perform in a college dance production on the Belushi Performance Hall stage in the College of DuPage McAninich Arts Center. All areas of dance are reflected in the production.
