The Dance Program is part of the Theatre and Dance Department. CIW minor in dance exposes students to various styles of dance, the thrill of performance and the dynamics of teaching dance in an elementary after-school program.
CIW has always offered a number of dance classes, primarily through the Theatre Arts Program. In 2002 the Theatre Arts Program produced the first Spring Dance Concert to enthusiastic audiences. In 2005, the Academic Council approved the new addition of a dance minor to the Theatre Arts Program. In 2007 we moved into our beautiful new studios where the program continued to flourish. Since then we've introduced the dance club Boundless, the Dance for service project, and more. The demand for dance and opportunity from the students is immense and grows each year. While the number of dance minors steadily grows each year, the CIW Academic Dance Program encourages everyone to get involved with dance!
