Dance is Alive at Loyola!
The Loyola University dance program is distinguished within the Chicago community and on a national level through its commitment to rigorous study of classical dance techniques. Training in ballet and classical modern dance techniques, as well as performing demanding repertory, allows students to develop their physical and artistic skills at a conservatory level while engaging in benefits of a Jesuit liberal arts education. Housed within the vibrant Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the Loyola dance program offers a dance major, a dance minor, and many classes that count towards core curriculum credit.
Through courses in history, pedagogy, choreography and more, students develop a rich and comprehensive vocabulary for evaluating, teaching, creating and performing dance. Additionally, we offer precise and formalized jazz dance technique courses and tap to support a minor in musical theatre.
