Dance Program

K-State Dance

Welcome to the K-State Dance Program

Our Dance Program offers a dance minor and a dance certificate.  We assist more than 80 students every year with gaining their dance dance minor.

We offer performance opportunities for Winter Dance, Spring Dance, and Dance Student Spotlight, to all K-State students, regardless of their major or minor.  We also have two active ensembles that are open to all K-State students.  The K-State Tap Dance Ensemble performs locally and regionally, in various venues.  The K-State African Ensemble offers experiences in West African Music and Dance.

If you would like to learn more about the K-State Dance Program please contact any of the K-State Dance Faculty.

We all look forward to meeting you at our performances and other activities throughout the academic year.
